CrossRef Launches Citation Look-Up Tool

Feb 15, 2008

CrossRef, an association behind the publisher-linking network, announced that it has launched the beta version of a new plug-in that allows bloggers to look up and insert DOI-enabled citations in the course of authoring a blog. The plug-in, which is available for free download, allows the blogger to use a widget-based interface to search CrossRef metadata using citations or partial citations. The results of the search, with multiple hits, are displayed and the author can then either click on a hit to follow the DOI to the publisher's site, or click on an icon next to the hit to insert the citation into their blog entry.
