Project Information

PKP and Crossref collaborate to help publishers and journals using Open Journal Systems (OJS) take better advantage of Crossref services. In 2014, PKP became a Sponsoring Organization of Crossref, providing improved Crossref integration and overall support for the service. Additionally, PKP can now act as a sponsor representative for OJS journals wishing to apply for Crossref membership and is, in some cases, able to waive fees.

DOI and Associated Metadata Export #

PKP is continually working with Crossref to improve the level of overall DOI export support provided within OJS. OJS has included a simple manual export plugin for several years; this plugin has supplemented with the following features:

  • automatic DOI deposit to Crossref on article publication (2.4.5);
  • inclusion of other article metadata in the Crossref deposit, including author ORCID iDs; article abstracts; and more (OJS 2.4.5);
  • inclusion of FundRef funding data (OJS 3.1.2-1);
  • inclusion of references (OJS 3.1.2-1);
  • improved use of Crossref API (OJS 3.1.2-1);
  • support for Similarity Check service;
  • support for reference linking and submission (OJS 3.1.2-x)
  • support for Crossref Funder registry (OJS 3.1.2-x)
  • support publications/versioning for DOIs (OJS 3.2)
  • also, regular review for improved user experience.

Future Development Plans and Milestones #

Crossref and PKP have formed a working group to review existing integrations and metadata. Stay tuned to the PKP blog for further announcements and news regarding Crossref.
