Now, we’re taking that responsibility one step further by improving our ability to maintain the content we publish.
CrossMark is a system provided by CrossRef, which monitors published articles bearing the CrossMark logo. If you’re connected to the internet, clicking the logo will tell you whether or not the article version you have is current, providing a CrossRef DOI link to any updates.
You will also be able to see key record information such as funding sources, researcher identifiers, related data, copyright & licensing data and publication history.
Being a member of CrossMark gives our authors extra assurance that their work’s integrity is being protected. It’s also helped to simplify the research process. If a paper bearing the CrossMark logo is downloaded or saved, the system will make sure that you’ll always have the right version, so no need for repeat searches.
The CrossMark logo will be added to all articles published in our journals from 14 July 2014. Find out more on our CrossMark Policy page.
