  • CrossRef DOIs for eBooks: Making it easier for readers to find your stuff
    Carol Anne Meyer
    CrossRef Webinar
    17 May 2011
  • Today’s Agenda
    Why assign CrossRefDOIs to books?
    Books now registered in CrossRef
    Best Practices for CrossRef Book DOIs
    DOI syntax for books
    Linking to and from books
    Depositing CrossRefDOIs& metadata for books
    Querying for books
    ISSNs and ISBNs for books & series
    How much?
    What’s next?
  • Why assign CrossRef DOIs to books Or, How does it help readers find my stuff?
    Persistent linking -- books interlink with other journal articles and other scholarly content
    Inbound links drive traffic; outbound links add value and utility
    CrossRef Books DOIs can resolve to information on purchasing -- for both print and online books
    Access/authentication remain under publisher control
  • 112 publishers deposit book content at CrossRef
    152,898 book titles deposited
    3,117,135 book DOIs (includes chapters and reference entries)
    The Numbers
  • Did you know…
    50 million DOIs are resolved every month?
  • Books DOIs can resolve to…
    • Book Titles
    • Book Chapters
    • Reference Entries
  • …title level response pages for e-books
  • …titles and book chapter response pages
  • …book chapters
  • …title level response page for print and e-books
  • …entries in reference works
  • 3 million book DOIs out of 47 million CrossRef DOIs
    http://crossref.org/06members/53status.html
  • Book DOI deposits have been growing rapidly
  • Best Practices Book DOIs
  • Best PracticesDepositing, linking and CrossRef DOI use
    Deposit DOIs at the title and chapter/entry level.
    Add outbound links from references in books.
    Deposit references from books with CrossRef to enable CrossRef Cited-by Linking.
  • Best PracticesAuthor guidelines
    Instruct authors to cite specific chapters and entries using page numbers, chapter/entry titles and CrossRef DOIs.
  • Best PracticesEditorial Guidelines
    Copyeditors add page numbers and chapter titles.
     Use tools in production to correct references
    Simple Text Query
    eXtyles® Automated Reference Checking
  • Best PracticesUpdates and Versions
    Major version – updates affect interpretation. Publisher will notify readers that content has changed. E.g.
    errata
    corrigenda
    new editions
    Minor version – unlikely to affect a interpretation. No publisher notification.
  • Signaling Versions of Record
    Watch for CrossMark Version of Record Service later this year
    http://www.crossref.org/crossmark/
  • Best PracticesUpdates and Versions
    Do assign new CrossRefDOIs to new major versions or editions of books, chapters and entries.
    Older versions remain available online with links to the latest version.
    Do not assign new CrossRefDOIs to minor new versions of books, chapters and entries.
    Use CrossRef Multiple Resolution where appropriate to enable multiple URLs to be associated with one CrossRef DOI.
  • Best Practices: Citation MatchingBook Title Queries
    Minimum query:
    book title
    book author
    book year
    And as many as possible of these:
    editor (where appropriate)
    book title
    year
    publisher
  • Best Practices: Citation MatchingChapter or Reference Entry Queries
    Minimum query:
    book title
    book year
    chapter author
    first page
    And as many as possible of these:
    editor (where appropriate)
    book title
    year
    publisher
    chapter author (where appropriate)
    chapter title
    chapter first page
  • Find Complete Best Practices Here
    http://www.crossref.org/06members/best_practices_for_books.html
  • DOI syntax
  • DOI Suffixes: Use ISBN for Book Titles
  • Displaying CrossRef DOIs in Book Citations
    The DOI should appear at the end of the reference
    The DOI should be encoded as a hyperlink
    Example:
    Corrigan, John. Religion and Emotion - Approaches and Interpretations. New York: Oxford University Press, 2004. Oxford Scholarship Online. Oxford University Press. 2005.http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/0195166248.001.0001
    Note: This is a change from the previous format
    doi:10.1093/0195166248.001.0001
  • Style Manuals
    Provide the DOI, if one has been assigned to the content…. Use this format for the DOI in references:
    doi:xxxxxx
    Section 6.32
    Providing Publication Data for Electronic Sources
    Publication Manual of the APA, page 191.
  • Multiple resolution
  • There are DOIs that are not CrossRefDOIs
    Other Registration Agencies have assigned DOIs to books for supply chain purposes.
    More information is available here:
    http://www.crossref.org/06members/otherdoifaq.html
  • Multi-linking DOIs from Bowker
  • DepositingCrossRef Book DOIs
    Metadata required for book DOI registration is described in the schema, sections 6-8
    http://www.crossref.org/schema/deposit/crossref4.3.0.xsd
    and in the documentation at:
    http://www.crossref.org/schema/info/CrossRefSchemaDocumentation4.1.0.pdf
  • Steps to deposit
    Determine the type of information you want to upload.
    Create the XML file to upload using the CrossRef deposit schema.  
    Verify your XML:
    http://www.crossref.org/02publishers/parser.html
    Decide whether you want to upload the file synchronously (manually) or asynchronously (programmatically).
    Pick the submission mechanism you want to use:
    CrossRef web interface (synchronous)
    Java or Perl scripts (asynchronous)
    CrossRefVBClient
    Web deposit form
    Submit the file(s).
  • Book Title Level Metadata
    Required data includes:
    Type: edited book, reference, monograph, or other
    Title
    Publisher
    Publication date
    ISBN
    Optional data includes:
    series title, and series ISSN*
    volume and edition numbers
    Book DOI and URL
    * If you include a series title it must have an ISSN
  • ISSNs& ISBNs in CrossRef Schema
    ISSNs are assignable to a series title and not book title.
    ISSN is directly bound to series title and must be present in series
    ISSN check digit will be verified upon deposit – invalid ISSNs will be rejected
    Volume is mandatory if series_metadata is present and volume level title is NOT present
    Titles and ISSNs/ISBNs in deposit must match titles associated with ISSNs/ISBNs in the system
    New titles will create a title entry in the system – updates/additions to this title must remain consistent
    Contact support@crossref.org to change titles
  • Chapter Level Metadata
    Required data includes:
    Chapter title
    DOI and URL
    Optional data:
    Contributors
    Pagination
    Component number
  • Web Deposit Form
    Manual DOI registration for books
    System builds XML deposit file
    http://www.crossref.org/webDeposit/
  • XML deposit
    Sample XML is available:
    Monograph:
    http://www.crossref.org/schema/info/samples/4.3.0_samples/monograph430.xml
    Series:
    http://www.crossref.org/schema/info/samples/4.3.0_samples/book_series430.xml
  • Simple-Text Query
    A freely available, non-XML alternative for reference linking
    A custom version of Inera’s eXtyles® refXpress parses unstructured references into granular, valid XML and returns any matching DOIs for those references
