Springer Launches CrossMark Service for Journal Content

May 15, 2014

Springer is launching CrossMark, an identification service from CrossRef, for forthcoming journal articles, to help the user always get the latest updates and most current content. All Springer journal content published from now on will have the CrossMark logo. 

For all Springer journal articles, there will be a CrossMark window on SpringerLink on the article HTML page that provides bibliographic metadata of that article and a statement about updates of the content.

CrossMark is a multi-publisher initiative providing a standard way for readers to locate the authoritative version of an article. By applying the CrossMark logo, Springer commits itself to maintaining the content it publishes and to alerting readers to changes if and when they occur.
