December 2018



As the year comes to a close we have three things to share with you.
First, a blog from Ed about all the good work Crossref have done on
behalf of the community this year—and boy, were we busy! Second, a link
to our LIVE18 annual meeting presentation recordings. And finally, a
reminder of the changes to our membership terms.

There's also a heartfelt greeting from all of us to all of you - happy
holidays and may all your metadata be richer in 2019!


Your last chance in 2018 to ask or tell us anything!.

Phew—it's been quite year!

As the end of the year approaches it's useful to look back and reflect on what we've achieved over the last 12 months—a lot! To be honest there were some things we didn't get done—or didn't make as much progress with as we hoped—but that happens when you have an ambitious agenda. However, we also got some things done that we didn't expect to, or that weren't even on our radar at the end of 2017.

Read Ed's blog and find out how we improved metadata, simplified our services, grew our constituencies and collaborated with others.

New membership terms will replace existing agreement

In its July 2018 meeting, the Crossref Board voted unanimously to approve and introduce a new set of membership terms. At the same meeting, the board also voted to change the description of membership eligibility in our Bylaws, officially broadening our remit beyond publishers, in line with current practice and positioning us for future growth.
