Managing errata and retractions with CrossMark

  1. 1. Managing errata and retractions
  2. 2. Content changes, readers need to know
  3. 3. CrossMark Basics • An embedded button for HTML and PDF that, when clicked, shows researcher the publication information that a publisher chooses to include • A great way to show users extra or updated information about the content they’re viewing • The information stays with the article and can be accessed even away from the publisher site • Machine-readable metadata available via the Crossref Metadata API
  4. 4. What information can you include? • Funding data • ORCIDs • License information • Clinical trial information • Other information (up to the publisher)
  5. 5. The Stats • Over 300 publishers depositing CrossMark metadata • For over 3.3m DOIs • Around 1% are updates (so even more important that they’re flagged!) • Slightly over 1000 of the updates are retractions
  6. 6. CrossMark Benefits • 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
  7. 7. Why the new look? • More room for more metadata • No second click • Fresh and contemporary flat design • Responsive on mobile devices (coming soon)
  8. 8. 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
  9. 9. 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
