Crossref/OASPA Publishers


Published on

This webinar will give an overview of Crossref and it’s network of member publishers, along with information on Crossref best practices and the services it's members can make use of. Many of these services have specific relevance to OA content, and the webinar will touch on these, as well as looking into specific aspects of the Crossref metadata that can help dissemination and discoverability of OA content.

Crossref will be joined by two guest speakers - Frontiers will talk about their OA workflows and how Crossref services integrate with these, and James MacGregor from PKP will show participants the Crossref Export/Registration Plugin which journals can enable to deposit DOIs with Crossref and to help them participate in other Crossref services.

[CrossRef] DOI directory returns URL User accesses cited article in Journal B
  13. 13. The figures: •  5000 publishers and societies •  76m+ content items with DOIs •  100 million clicks per month •  Make-up of membership is changing over time: majority of new members are small, OA publishers, many of whom use OJS
  14. 14. •  29 staff (UK and USA) •  16 person Board of Directors, cross- section of publishers •  Working groups and committees
  15. 15. Let’s talk about OA Content •  Make it discoverable via humans & via machine •  How? •  License information •  Reference deposit and distribution •  Funding data and ORCID •  And, once it’s out there: •  CrossMark •  DOI event tracker (DET) •  Crossref REST API
  16. 16. How do people know your content is OA? •  License information added to Crossref metadata •  In the form of a URL so it’s computer-readable •  OA/non-OA. Free to read? •  Different licenses for different content versions • indicators (.csv upload option too)
  17. 17. Reference deposit & distribution •  Make your content as discoverable as possible •  Members required to link references using DOIs, but publishers can deposit these too •  Working on tools to extract references from PDF files and conversion to XML so that these can be deposited easily. •
  18. 18. Citation Information
  19. 19. Reference Distribution •  By default, references are not made available via query results/our API etc. •  However, publishers can opt to distribute the references they deposit with Crossref: distributing-references •  Email

  29. 29. What is CrossMark? •  A logo that identifies a publisher-maintained copy of a piece of content •  Clicking the logo tells you •  Whether there have been any updates •  That this is the publisher-maintained copy, or the location of that copy •  Other important publication record information
  30. 30. Publication record information:
  31. 31. DOI Event Tracker
  32. 32. How does information spread? •  Supplemental and grey literature (e.g. data, software, working papers) •  Orthogonal professional literature (e.g. patents, legal documents, governmental/NGO/IGO reports, consultation reports, professional trade literature). •  Scholarly tools (e.g. citation management systems, text & data mining applications). •  Secondary outlets for scholarly literature (institutional & disciplinary repositories, A&I services). •  Mainstream media (e.g. BBC, New York Times). •  Social media (e.g. Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, Yo).
  33. 33. We had our board meeting yesterday, and the topic of ALM came up. How could OASPA support this more practically? Could a group of publishers come together to form some kind of collaborative project where we agree to do things in similar ways, so that data is more comparable etc? How could that interface with work at CrossRef? Mark Patterson 3/25/14
