The Global reach of Crossref metadata

  1. 1. Using metadata: who, how and why
  2. 2. Publishers —> Crossref Basic metadata: titles; author names; ISSNs/ISBNs, abstracts, references Funding Information, Funder identifiers, award numbers License Information, License URIs Full-text URIs (used in TDM) Significant updates, retractions, corrections ORCID iDs Peer Review reports, relations Soon… Organization IDs, etc…
  3. 3. What do people do with Crossref metadata?
  4. 4. search, discovery, mining services
  5. 5. funders and funding tracking tools
  6. 6. A collaborative writing tool Built a tool based on Crossref metadata to allow authors to search and cite without leaving the editor.
  7. 7. author profiling tools
  8. 8. A free open dataset built on the Centre for Open Science (COS) technology Integrates Crossref metadata to join other sources such as DataONE, 50+ library institutional repositories.
  9. 9. “We would love to see rights-declaration metadata. This is invaluable to know whether it’s public domain or copyrighted, and any constraints for use.” Cynthia Hudson-Vitale, Digital data librarian in Research Data and GIS Services at Washington University in St. Louis Libraries and
  10. 10. National Library of Sweden The Crossref metadata is presently used in two projects; Open APC Sweden and in our local analysis database for publication statistics used in negotiations with publishers. Open APC Sweden is a pilot project to gather data on open access publication costs (APC’s – Article Processing Charges) from Swedish universities. The project is modelled from the German Bielefeld University Open APC initiative, which is a part of the INTACTproject. After APC data has been delivered to the APC system, scripts are run against the Crossref API to fetch information about publishers and journals. A description of Open APC Sweden can be found here. When building our local analysis database for publisher statistics, we download data from the SwePub database, use the Crossref DOIs for API lookup against Crossref to add correct ISSN and publisher data to the records and then match the records against a list of publisher serials. In this way, we can get information about how much Swedish researchers have been publishing with a certain publisher and use this data when negotiating conditions for open access publishing with the publisher in question.
