Event Data

Publisher metadata is one side of the story surrounding research outputs, but conversations, connections and activities that build further around scholarly research, takes place all over the web. We built Event Data to capture, record and make available these ‘Events’ - providing open, transparent, and traceable information about the provenance and context of every Event. Events are comments, links, shares, bookmarks, references, etc.

Metadata Manager

Metadata Manager offers a simple way to deposit and update metadata, for both single and multiple deposits. At present, Metadata Manager supports only journal content (but other content types will be added in future). Start from Metadata Manager, and enter your Crossref username and password. If you have forgotten your username or password, please contact us to retrieve them.

OJS Users

This category is a place users of the Open Journal Systems (OJS) platform and Crossref plug-in can discuss any issues and challenges, share their experiences and discuss any news or upcoming developments. OJS is a journal management and publishing system that has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project. PKP is working with Crossref to improve the level of overall DOI export support provided within OJS.
