From the April 2014 issue of CrossRef Quarterly:
After a successful pilot under the name “Prospect,” CrossRef’s support for publishers to simplify text and data mining access for researchers involves two components:
- A CrossRef API researchers can use to access the full text of content identified by CrossRef DOIs across publisher sites and regardless of their business model.
- An optional click-through service that researchers and publishers can use as an efficient mechanism to provide “click-through” agreement of proprietary TDM licenses, if the publisher requires them.
[Our emphasis] Both components are free to use by researchers and the public.
CrossRef metadata already contains over 130,000 full-text links deposited by a number of publisher members, including Hindawi, the American Chemical Society (ACS), and the American Institute of Physics.
