CrossRef has announced that it had entered into an agreement with iParadigms to develop a system that allows scholarly and professional publishers to verify the originality of submitted and published works. The service, when it is launched, will be called "CrossCheck." Six academic publishers have agreed to allow their full-text content to be indexed for the pilot, and to test the service along several measures. The six participating publishers are: the Association for Computing Machinery; BMJ Publishing Group Ltd; Elsevier; The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers; Taylor & Francis; and Wiley-Blackwell.
