  2. 2. Today’s Agenda<br />Why assign CrossRefDOIs to books?<br />Books now registered in CrossRef<br />Best Practices for CrossRef Book DOIs<br />DOI syntax for books<br />Linking to and from books<br />Depositing CrossRefDOIs& metadata for books<br />Querying for books<br />ISSNs and ISBNs for books & series<br />How much?<br />What’s next?<br />
  3. 3. Why assign CrossRef DOIs to books Or, How does it help readers find my stuff?<br />Persistent linking -- books interlink with other journal articles and other scholarly content<br />Inbound links drive traffic; outbound links add value and utility<br />CrossRef Books DOIs can resolve to information on purchasing -- for both print and online books<br />Access/authentication remain under publisher control<br />
  4. 4. 112 publishers deposit book content at CrossRef<br />152,898 book titles deposited<br />3,117,135 book DOIs (includes chapters and reference entries)<br />The Numbers<br />
  5. 5. Did you know…<br />50 million DOIs are resolved every month?<br />
  6. 6. Books DOIs can resolve to…<br /><ul><li>Book Titles
  7. 7. Book Chapters
  8. 8. Reference Entries</li></li></ul><li>…title level response pages for e-books<br />
  9. 9. …titles and book chapter response pages<br />
  10. 10. …book chapters <br />
  11. 11. …title level response page for print and e-books<br />
  12. 12. …entries in reference works<br />
  13. 13. 3 million book DOIs out of 47 million CrossRef DOIs<br />http://crossref.org/06members/53status.html<br />
  14. 14. Book DOI deposits have been growing rapidly<br />
  15. 15. Best Practices Book DOIs<br />
  16. 16. Best PracticesDepositing, linking and CrossRef DOI use<br />Deposit DOIs at the title and chapter/entry level. <br />Add outbound links from references in books. <br />Deposit references from books with CrossRef to enable CrossRef Cited-by Linking.<br />
  17. 17. Best PracticesAuthor guidelines<br />Instruct authors to cite specific chapters and entries using page numbers, chapter/entry titles and CrossRef DOIs. <br />
  18. 18.
  19. 19. Best PracticesEditorial Guidelines<br />Copyeditors add page numbers and chapter titles.<br /> Use tools in production to correct references<br />Simple Text Query<br />eXtyles® Automated Reference Checking<br />
  20. 20. Best PracticesUpdates and Versions<br />Major version – updates affect interpretation. Publisher will notify readers that content has changed. E.g.<br />errata<br />corrigenda<br />new editions<br />Minor version – unlikely to affect a interpretation. No publisher notification. <br />
  21. 21. Signaling Versions of Record<br />Watch for CrossMark Version of Record Service later this year<br />http://www.crossref.org/crossmark/<br />
  22. 22. Best PracticesUpdates and Versions<br />Do assign new CrossRefDOIs to new major versions or editions of books, chapters and entries. <br /> Older versions remain available online with links to the latest version. <br />Do not assign new CrossRefDOIs to minor new versions of books, chapters and entries.<br />Use CrossRef Multiple Resolution where appropriate to enable multiple URLs to be associated with one CrossRef DOI.<br />
  23. 23. Best Practices: Citation MatchingBook Title Queries<br />Minimum query:<br />book title <br />book author <br />book year <br />And as many as possible of these:<br />editor (where appropriate) <br />book title <br />year <br />publisher <br />
  24. 24. Best Practices: Citation MatchingChapter or Reference Entry Queries <br />Minimum query:<br />book title <br />book year <br />chapter author <br />first page <br />And as many as possible of these:<br />editor (where appropriate) <br />book title <br />year <br />publisher <br />chapter author (where appropriate) <br />chapter title <br />chapter first page <br />

  26. 26. DOI syntax<br />
  27. 27. DOI Suffixes: Use ISBN for Book Titles<br />
  28. 28.
  29. 29. Displaying CrossRef DOIs in Book Citations<br />The DOI should appear at the end of the reference<br />The DOI should be encoded as a hyperlink <br />Example:<br />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 <br />Note: This is a change from the previous format <br /> doi:10.1093/0195166248.001.0001<br />
  30. 30. Style Manuals<br />Provide the DOI, if one has been assigned to the content…. Use this format for the DOI in references:<br />doi:xxxxxx<br />Section 6.32 <br />Providing Publication Data for Electronic Sources<br />Publication Manual of the APA, page 191.<br />
