CrossRef Launches Free Citation Look-Up Tool for Bloggers

CrossRef ( announced that it has launched the beta version of a new plug-in that allows bloggers to look up and insert DOI-enabled citations (Digital Object Identifier) in the course of authoring a blog. The plug-in, which is available for download at, allows the blogger to use a widget-based interface to search CrossRef metadata using citations or partial citations. The results of the search, with multiple hits, are displayed, and the author can then either click on a hit to follow the DOI to the publisher’s site or click on an icon next to the hit to insert the citation into a blog entry (as either a full citation or as a short op. cit.).

At present, the CrossRef plug-in is available for the WordPress platform; a Moveable Type version is under development. The tool is designed with the bulk of the functionality contained in a shared back end hosted at CrossRef, making the plug-in GUI readily portable to other blogging and authoring platforms.

CrossRef is a nonprofit membership association founded and directed by publishers. Its mission is to enable easy identification and use of trustworthy electronic content by promoting the cooperative development and application of a sustainable infrastructure. CrossRef operates a cross-publisher citation linking system, and it is the official DOI name registration agency for scholarly and professional content.
