A growing number of our members are organizations who work with or publish on behalf of groups of smaller publishers who fit a specific criteria. If you are one of these entities, you might be considering how you can also offer Crossref services to the publishers you work with.
We have a couple of options that might help - we have two categories of organizations that work with us on behalf of publishers they represent – Sponsoring Members and Sponsoring Affiliates. Both types of sponsor work directly with us in order to provide administrative, billing, technical and if applicable, language support to publishers and societies. In turn, we’re keen to support these organizations too, by running LIVE events and other outreach with them and listening to their feedback on what they need from us.
If you’re interested in this option, you can read on to find out how being a Sponsoring Affiliate and a Sponsoring Member differ and which definition you fall under. Not sure? Get in touch and we’ll work with you to figure out the best fit.
There are two categories of organizations that work with us on behalf of represented publishers – Sponsoring Members and Sponsoring Affiliates.
You publish your own content as well as content on behalf of other organizations (we call those organizations Sponsored Members). You sign one agreement with us covering all publishing activities.
You are not a primary publisher but you provide publishing services for of publishing organizations (we call these Represented Members). You have agreements with us and with each sponsored member, you sign a renewal agreement with us each year, and submit an annual report of your outreach and training activities.
We work with a growing number of Sponsoring Affiliates. These are members who work directly with us in order to provide administrative, billing, technical and if applicable, language support to publishers and societies. In turn, we’re keen to support these organizations too, by running LIVE events and other outreach with them and listening to their feedback on what they need from us.
Smaller organizations may be able to join via a Sponsoring Affiliate to take advantage of the local support they can offer. Our current Sponsoring Affiliates are listed below.
