If you are applying to register your content and deposit metadata and DOIs, please be sure to read the member obligations first. Or if you only want to query metadata, continue to the form now.
You’re now applying for membership of Crossref. Joining Crossref is a promise to look after your content. Membership therefore comes with a bit of work on your end. Please make sure you’ve read and agree with your membership obligations.
This question helps decide whether you’d need a classic publisher member contract or one of our affilate agreements.
Sponsoring publishers undertake all membership activities and obligations on behalf of their publisher cusomters, including registering content and paying fees.
We need a minimum of three different individuals at your organization for these five purposes. The billing contact will receive invoices, the voting contact will vote in the board election each November, the business contact will receive important strategic information about products and services, the technical contact will receive anything requiring platform updates or API work, and the metadata quality contact will receive detailed reports such as errors in metadata deposits or conflicts with other records.
You can use the ‘next’ and ‘back’ buttons to make any edits to your application.
Please review the member obligations.
