CrossRef Integrates Services With PKP

CrossRef teamed up with the PKP (Public Knowledge Project) open source software initiative to help publishers on PKP’s Open Journal Systems (OJS) management platform use CrossRef’s services more effectively. Their agreement provides for software features such as an enhanced CrossRef plug-in for OJS that automates DOI (digital object identifier) deposits and the creation of new tools for extracting references from submissions. Additionally, OJS’ publishers will be able to join CrossRef through PKP.

The newest version of OJS includes other improvements designed to benefit CrossRef members, one of which is the ability for plug-in users to deposit Open Researcher and Contributor IDentifiers (ORCID), which OJS can now accept during the author registration and article submission processes. This version also facilitates further integration with CrossRef’s features and services.

“It has been challenging for some [small publishers] to meet our membership obligations like outbound reference linking and arranging for long-term archiving. And many have not been able to participate in newer services, because they require the ability to deposit additional metadata,” says Ed Pentz, CrossRef’s executive director. “We want all of our publishers to have a level playing field, regardless of their size. Our cooperation with PKP will help make that happen.”
