The CrossRef update system facilitates reference linking and other sustainable cross-publisher services for the scholarly community. The reader simply clicks on the CrossMark logo to view status information about the article. The appearance of a CrossMark logo on PDF document indicates that the publisher is taking care of any updates, corrections, retractions, or other changes.
Indexation in CrossRef gives authenticity to a journal that is assigning DOI’s to its published articles. As part of a global effort to improve access to research data, there is growing impetus for an international culture of citation using the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) System. It increases acceptance of research data as legitimate and citable contributions to the scholarly record.
CrossRef's specific mandate is to be the citation linking backbone for all scholarly information in electronic form. CrossRef is a collaborative reference linking service that functions as a sort of digital switchboard. It holds no full text content, but rather effects linkages through CrossRef Digital Object Identifiers (CrossRef DOI) which are tagged to article metadata supplied by the participating publishers.
