When we rebranded last year, part of this was import to have a good summary of who we are and what we do Crossers is not just about DOIs! not define by a particular service but by how we fit into the scholarly community as a whole
6 Truths we uphold at Crossref. Read slide. 1. Collaboration is at the core of everything we do. Our focus is on things that are best achieved by working together. We involve the community through active working groups and committees, board of directors made up of member, events like this.. 2. All types of publishers. Large commercial, small not for profit, univ, gov’t, library.. 3. Members decide our board. 4, We do R&D to support and expand the shared infrastructure we run for the scholarly community. We create open source tools and services to help our members solve problems and meet best publishing practice. 5. Our broad and inclusive community may have different views, but when it comes to law and policy, Crossref remains impartial. 6. We are obsessed with persistence - of links, of our technology, and of the organization. Membership and service fees cover our costs, and our surplus means we can do new things and sustain the community infrastructure for the long term.

If you publish scholarly content, you are a publisher. Lots of metadata. We have services that allow our members to enhance their publication record Standard way to report funding sources for scholarly research Our Crossmark service provides a way for publishers to report and display….this allows researchers to know they have current and accurate sources Sim Check More depth throughout the day
All of this content has metadata that is available to search. Who uses the metadata But a lot of others use us as well. - academic, gov’t, research world
And we continue to grow each year
Not just about DOIs!
At the end of our first year we had 54 member and affiliated organizations, and have continued to grow each year. in 2012, participation in our sponsoring program began to increase. Sponsors are affiliated organizations that act on behalf of smaller publishers and societies who wish to register their content with Crossref.
we supply services to all many different types of organizations. these are publisher who work with one of our sponsoring organization to register their content Brazil, Turkey, South Korea, Russia, Japan, India who work wit publishers from those countries and can offer support in local language and facilitate payment in local currency. It been a very successful program thus far, would like to enhance participation and countries
our membership is really growing outside the US and Western Europe which is where our first members came from. We’re seeing a new type of audience with different needs and we need to have conversations to figure out what those needs and how we can meet them. Increased collaboration with OJS is one of those ways.
Since 1st Jan 2016 (until 31st October 2017) we have had 3260 new members join from around the world. The largest areas in terms of growth of new members are in the Asia-Pacific and Eastern Europe, with nearly half of all new members coming from these regions.
Non-profit = 993 (nearly one 3rd) Small publishers (with 50 DOI’s registered or less) = 1515 (around half) or 1931 with 100 or less.
That’s a lot of metadata being deposited.
