  • 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.
  • Here is another example of outbound linking - this publisher is including the full DOI url in their references, making it very easy to cut and paste etc. This is recommended in our DOI display guidelines. The complete guidelines are on our website.
  • First is the resolution report. It is sent out monthly to the business contact we have on file. This report is comprised of statistics we extract from DOI resolution logs and contains data about how many times your DOIs have been clicked and your overall resolution failure rate (successes vs. failures) There’s a lot of interesting data here – it has a.) how many resolutions you have per month – and lists the previous 12 months as well, so you can compareb.) it also includes info on resolution attempts (that is, how many times someone tries to resolve one of your DOIs. c.) also has a list of your top ten DOIsd.) this is important – the report lists your overall resolution failure rate, as well as the overall failure percentage for all members. The resolution failure rate is the percentage of DOI resolution attempts that have failed. This rate often gives members a heads up about potential problems, whether it be someone creating bad links to your content, or you failing to deposit DOIs that have been published.e.) there is a .csv file attached to your report that lists all failed DOI resolution attempts. Some of these are garbage – users make errors, especially when they are cutting and pasting, but if you have a high failure rate you should look at these DOIs closely.

  • Introduction to CrossRef Webinar

    1. 1. Introduction to CrossRef for publishers Patricia Feeney Product Support Manager
    2. 2. Agenda  CrossRef overview  Creating and working with CrossRef DOIs  Maintaining your DOIs and metadata  CrossRef services  Resources
    3. 3. mission statement: CrossRef's goal is to be a trusted collaborative organization with broad community connections; authoritative and innovative in support of a persistent, sustainable infrastructure for scholarly communication.
    4. 4. 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)
    5. 5. DOI = Digital Object Identifier  Uniquely identifies a digital object  Solves link rot (broken links)
    6. 6. + DOI = persistent URL
    7. 7. International DOI Foundation (IDF): oversees the central DOI system, promotes the 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.
    8. 8. DOI Registration agencies European Union Office of Publications TIB (Technische Informationsbibliotek) R.R. Bowker Nielsen Bookdata Copyright Agency Limited (CAL) mEDRA Wanfang Data DataCite CrossRef
    9. 9. Outbound linking
    10. 10. Content beyond journals…  Books  Standards  Proceedings  Images  Figures  Datasets  Workingpapers  Dissertations 87% 11% 6% 2% Journals Books Conference Proceedings Components (as of 2/12/13)
    11. 11. CrossRef 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…
    12. 12. Step-by-step 1. Join CrossRef! 2. Publish 3. Deposit 4. Query 5. Outbound linking 6. Maintain DOIs and Metadata
    13. 13. Member obligations:  outbound reference linking  deposit all current journal articles  resolve any DOI conflicts  update metadata and URLs  do not publicize CrossRef DOIs until links are live  pay deposit and annual fees  make plans for long term archiving
    14. 14. Long term archiving: CLOCKSS: Koninklijke Bibliotheek / National Library of the Netherlands: Portico:
    15. 15. 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
    16. 16. Response page must include:  bibliographic information about the item  means to access full text  the DOI
    17. 17. DOIs are required on the response page, recommended on other pages:  Tables of contents  Abstracts  Full text HTML and PDF articles and other scholarly documents  Citation downloads to reference management systems  Metadata feeds to third parties  “How to Cite This” instructions on content pages  Social networking links  Anywhere users are directed to a permanent, stable, or persistent link to content.

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:
