cited-by linking sign-up

This click-through registration form contains the policies applicable to participating in cited-by linking. Please read it carefully.


1. Participation in Cited-by Linking (formerly Forward Linking (FL)) is optional for Crossref members.

2. Members must deposit references from their current material to retrieve Cited-by Linking data (i.e. to retrieve “cited-by” links).

4. There will be no “public” interface for retrieving Cited-by Linking data. There is currently a form for free single DOI lookup on the CrossRef website but no equivalent form will be available for Cited-by Linking data.

5. Cited-by Linking will not be available for secondary records.
