This is the count of cited-by links available in CrossRef as of last weekwhich results from participation by only about one third of the deposited DOIs. Lots of opportunity to grow.
Deposit of DOIs with references really drop off going backwards through the 2000’s and flatten out at very low levels even for the 1990’sDeposit of references for backfiles !!
FundRef was one of the larger initiatives we worked on this past year, and I should still working on.We’ve made changes to facilitate easier deposits of Crossmark and FundRef dataModified the deposit schema to support MathML, Abstracts, non-CR DOIs and text mining data

CrossRef System Update
• Cross-publisher Cited-by
metadata feeds to CMS
• Cross-publisher update
• Cross-publisher funder
• Cross-publisher text and
Deposit stand-alone CrossMark and FundRef data
Include MathML in article titles
Include abstracts (JATS)
Non-CrossRef DOIs as components
Components (figures, pictures, tables) used by more than one article
Text-mining support (metadata about licenses)
Full support for ORCIDs, deposit them & search on them
Improved data replication
Some notable changes
Assigning Multiple DOIs to books
Problem: Book deposits from multiple sources had depended on multiple
resolution but the participants found the process cumbersome or
Solution: Allow multiple DOIs to be deposited for the same book content
from one or more members (different or the same prefix) and make
multiple resolution happen by magic behind the scenes.
Allow references to non CrossRef DOIs
Problem:DOIs assigned in DataCite to databases may be referenced
from journal articles
Solution: Allow these DOIs deposited as <citations>. Then allow anyone
to perform Cited-By queries on these DOIs.
