Metadata Quality Check

Parse XML against Crossref Schema

Upload the file you wish to parse. Any identified errors must be corrected to ensure a successful deposit.

Schema declarations in your XML

This test parser requires that the schema location be present in your schema declaration, for example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<doi_batch version="4.3.3" xmlns=""xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">

To use other versions of the schema simply replace the 4.3.3 accordingly. Schema details are available in Crossref Help.

Schematron-based Metadata Quality Check (Schema v. 4.3.0)

This process searches for potential flaws in your metadata. The identified errors will not prevent deposit, but will affect overall metadata quality and may negatively affect queries for your content.

Note: The Schematron check will only work for schema version 4.3.0.
