  • After you’ve retrieved your reference DOIs, you need to include them in the reference lists on your website. The DOI links can be represented in a few different ways, here’s one example – the ‘Article’ links are DOI links.
  • Transcript

    • 1. Introduction to CrossRef Patricia Feeney Product Support Manager September 17, 2014
    • 2. Why do publishers join?  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 (CrossCheck, CrossMark)
    • 3. DOI = Digital Object Identifier  Uniquely identifies a digital object  Solves link rot (broken links)
    • 4. + DOI = persistent URL 9

    • 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.

    • 23. Public interfaces: SimpleText Query CrossRef Metadata Search Machine interfaces: HTTP POST or GET OpenURL OAI-PMH (for CMS subscribers) More info: How Querying Works
    • 24. SimpleText Query DOI match! DOI match!
    • 25. CrossRef Metadata Search
    • 26. Resolve all conflicts Conflicts occur when two (or more) DOIs share the same metadata, suggesting two DOIs are assigned to a single item.
    • 27. Why are conflicts bad?  Only one DOI should be assigned per item  Queries will return multiple DOIs, causing confusion  Some queries (OpenURL) may not return a DOI if multiple results are present  Conflicts between two DOIs often result in one of the DOIs being neglected
    • 28. Update metadata and URLs URL update;fromPrefix=10.5555;toPrefix=10.5555 10.5555/doi1 10.5555/doi2 10.5555/doi2 Updating metadata To make changes to your metadata, resubmit your entire deposit. There is no charge for updating your DOIs – we encourage you to update them as often as needed.
    • 29. Maintaining Journal Titles  Title and ISSN combinations are determined by the publisher.  A valid ISSN is required for all journal titles  The title / ISSN combination in your deposit must match the title / ISSN combination in our system.  If a title changes, a new ISSN is required  Journals should be deposited under the original title Title list: Title transfer policies:
    • 30. 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:  Deposit Harvester Reports!

DOI Error report (emailed nightly as needed)  compiled from reports submitted by end users  emailed nightly to technical contact Reasons for DOI Error:  a DOI has been published but not deposited  the published DOI does not match the deposited DOI  the end user misinterpreted or mistyped a DOI (i.e. confusing 1 for l or 0 for O) More info: DOI Error Report
