Working with a sponsor

We have thousands of small members from all over the world. Being small-scale doesn’t limit your ability to connect your content with the global network of online scholarly research. Each Crossref member also gets to cast their vote to create a board that represents all types of organizations.

Why join via a Sponsor?

If you publish one journal or thousands, you’re welcome to join our growing community.

We know that cost and technical capabilities can be barriers to participation. Joining through a Sponsor can help. Members who take this option have the same obligations and benefits as any other member, but they have someone representing them for Crossref services and they don’t pay fees to Crossref directly.

Instead, the sponsor pays one membership fee to Crossref for all the members that they work with, and sponsors also pay the content registration fees for any content registered by their members. Many sponsors then pass on these fees to members and/or charge the members for their services, so it’s important for members to discuss the agreement carefully with a sponsor before starting to work with them.

Sponsors have to fulfill strict criteria to be accepted. Different sponsors offer different services, but most:

  • Facilitate content registration with Crossref on behalf of the members they work with
  • Provide administrative, technical, and (if applicable) local language support
  • Handle Crossref billing (which is in US$) on behalf of these members
  • Are able to receive payment for their services in local currency.

How to join via a Sponsor

Some Sponsors only work with organizations that are connected to them in some way - for example, they may be part of the same university consortium or the organization may be using the Sponsor’s publishing platform. You can find a list of Sponsors below. If they’re based on your region and have contact details below then they will be happy to discuss acting on your behalf for Crossref membership.

Do contact them directly if you’d like to explore working with them; we cannot broker that arrangement for you. If you agree to work together, your Sponsor will send you a dedicated link to apply for Crossref membership under their sponsorship. Please don’t use the standard link to apply for membership that you can find on this website.

Upon receipt of your application, we usually provide your Sponsor with your prefix and Crossref account credentials within four working days and they will be in touch with you from there.

+- National and University Library in Zagreb (Croatia)

National and University Library in Zagreb is the host institution of the Croatian DOI Office. The role of the Office is to act as an intermediary between Croatian publishers of scientific journals and the Crossref DOI registration agency, manage DOI-related administrative operations (e.g. DOI membership, payment of DOI services), provide technical support and organise the promotion of the DOI system.

It intermediates in the assignment of DOIs and Content Registration for titles, volumes, issues and articles of Croatian current online scientific and professional journals whose publishers are interested in membership in the DOI system, or those that are already members of the system but wish to use the advantages available as part of services provided by the Office. The standards required for DOI assignment for journals are that they regularly publish full-text articles in the Croatian online environment, that their bibliographic data and other related details are available according to Crossref recommendations and that they have an ISSN.

Membership through the Croatian DOI Office enables publishers to use a unique prefix, or, in the case of publishers who were part of the DOI system before registering with the Office, to keep using the prefix that they were assigned at their first independent DOI registration request. The Office provides its technical support through a newly developed unique national DOI system (DOI-HR). The National and University Library in Zagreb, as an authorised archive, is responsible for the permanent storage of metadata and objects assigned DOIs. Thus, in the case that an object disappears from the internet, its DOI is redirected to its archived copy in order to ensure the permanency of its link to the object. The expenses for all DOI services and membership during one year for publishers applying for DOIs through the Croatian DOI Office are covered by subsidies provided by the Croatian Ministry of Science and Education.
