Managing changes to content: Crossmark

  1. 1. Managing changes to content
  2. 2. Why is it important to update content? • Readers need to know that they can trust that they can use the research • Publishers and journals are the authority on this • Not bad/negative to update works - it helps to maintain the scholarly record - this is an important job for publishers to do
  3. 3. What’s the problem?
  4. 4. Updates shown in different ways
  5. 5. It’s good to see updates in a consistent way
  6. 6. On HTML and PDF
  7. 7. Solution: Crossmark • An embedded button for HTML and PDF that, when clicked, shows the researcher publication information that a publisher chooses to include • A great way to show users extra or updated information about the content they’re viewing so that they can trust it • The information stays with the article and can be accessed even away from the publisher site • Machine-readable metadata available via the Crossref REST API

  10. 10. Benefits • Lets readers know they can trust the content • Convenient - one place to access information • Works in both HTML and PDF • Easier for researchers to cite the most recent version of content • Additional publication information all in one place • Free for researchers to click on • More dissemination of your metadata
  11. 11. The Stats • Nearly 500 publishers depositing Crossmark metadata • For over 5m DOIs • Around 1% are updates (so even more important that they’re flagged!) • Over 1600 of the updates are retractions
  12. 12. What information can you include? • Funding data • ORCIDs • License information • Clinical trial information • Other information (up to the publisher)
  13. 13. Key Takeaways • Content changes and readers need to know • An easy way to communicate publication information and changes to researchers • The more metadata you register the richer & more useful your content becomes
  14. 14. Information made available for re-use
  15. 15. How do to get started? • Sign up • Create a Crossmark policy page and deposit an identifier • Deposit Crossmark metadata • Record DOI in the metadata of your HTML landing page • Display the link and Crossmark logo on your HTML and PDF • Keep your Crossmark content up to date
