Introduction to CrossRef Basics Webinar

  1. 1. Introduction to Crossref Patricia Feeney Product Support Manager
  2. 2. Founded in 2000 A not-for-profit trade association of global scholarly publishers Members from over 80 countries 5770 international publishers & societies 76+ million DOIs registered
  3. 3. Why do publishers join CrossRef?  To get persistent identifiers for their content  To drive more traffic to their content  To turn references into hyperlinks  To pull in cited-by links (who cites this?)  Participate in other collaborative services and in (CrossCheck, CrossMark)
  4. 4. DOI = Digital Object Identifier  Uniquely identifies a digital object  Solves link rot (broken links)
  5. 5. 76,288,012 Crossref DOIs! * figures, tables, supplemental materials Also: Standards, Working Papers, Dissertations, Datasets CrossRef Status Page Type # titles #DOIs % of total Journals 39,870 57,434,631 77% Books 618,900 9,537,792 13% Proceedings 44,148 4,061,186 5% Components* 1,974,120 2%
  6. 6. International DOI Foundation (IDF): oversees the central DOI system, promote DOI as a standard, and provides an organizational infrastructure that ensures persistence and interoperability. Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI): they (among other things) are responsible for the Handle system, which is the technology that causes DOIs to resolve. Registration Agencies (RAs): Register DOIs on behalf of other organizations. CrossRef is a RA.
  7. 7. Deposit DOIs and metadata Basic citation metadata: author (s), journal title, article title, volume, issue, publication date, book title, chapter title, page numbers, article IDs, internal identifiers, ISSN, ISBN… Optional (but recommended): Funding information, ORCIDs, references (to support cited- by linking), CrossMark metadata, text and data mining license information
  8. 8. http://dx.doi.org/ DOI directory 10.1666/ DOI prefix 09-114.1 DOI suffix
  9. 9. http://dx.doi.org/10.1666/09-114.1<- DOI
  10. 10. Prefix:  Assigned to members  Format is 10.XXXX (or 10.XXXXX)  Identifies who initially created the DOI  Prefix does not identify the current owner of the DOI Suffix:  Unique within a prefix – a DOI can only be assigned to one item  Consistent  Logical  Easily documented  Readily implemented  case insensitive http://dx.doi.org/10.1006/jmbi.1995.0238 http://dx.doi.org/ DOI directory 10.1006/ DOI prefix jmbi.1995.0238 DOI suffix More info: creating a suffix
  11. 11. The vast majority of transactions are made via a machine interface Public interface: Web deposit form: http://www.crossref.org/webDeposit/ System interface: http://doi.crossref.org HTTP More info: Deposit Basics Deposit interfaces
  12. 12. Publishing and displaying DOIs Display CrossRef DOIs as a URL Include CrossRef DOIs on response pages (required), TOCs, abstracts, PDFs, citation downloads, metadata feeds, social network links Do not publicize DOIs until links are live
  13. 13. Display DOIs Response page must include:  bibliographic information about the item  means to access full text  the DOI
  14. 14. Outbound Reference Linking
  15. 15. DOI guidelines http://www.crossref.org/02publishers/doi_display_guidelines.html Ghosh, M.K., M.L. Harter. 2003. A viral mechanism for remodeling chromatin structure in G0 cells. Mol. Cell. 12:255–260, http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S1097- 2765(03)00225-9 Ghosh, M.K., M.L. Harter. 2003. A viral mechanism for remodeling chromatin structure in G0 cells. Mol.

  16. 16. Public interfaces: SimpleText Query CrossRef Metadata Search http://doi.crossref.org Machine interfaces: HTTP POST or GET OpenURL OAI-PMH (for CMS subscribers) More info: How Querying Works Query interfaces
  17. 17. Update metadata and URLs Easy URL update: H:email=pfeeney@crossref.org;fromPrefix=10.5555;toPrefix=10.5555 10.5555/doi1 http://www.yoururl.com/journal/art1 10.5555/doi2 http://www.yoururl.com/journal/art2 10.5555/doi2 http://www.yoururl.com/journal/art12  There is no charge for updating your DOIs – we encourage you to update them as often as needed.  Acquire a title from a Crossref member? DO NOT create new DOIs for existing content.
  18. 18. Resolve all conflicts Conflict: two (or more) DOIs share the same metadata, suggesting two DOIs are assigned to a single item.
  19. 19. Recurring reports:  Resolution Report (email) As-needed reports:  Conflict  DOI Error Report (email)  Schematron Report (email) Always available:  Depositor Report  Status Report  Go-live report  Title list Tools  XML Parser  Test system: http://test.crossref.org  Deposit Harvester Reports!
  20. 20. Resolution Report (emailed monthly) More info: Resolution Report
  21. 21. Make plans for long-term archiving CLOCKSS: http://clockss.org Koninklijke Bibliotheek / National Library of the Netherlands: http://www.kb.nl/ Portico: http://www.portico.org
