Publishers place the Crossmark button close to the title of a piece of content on their web pages and in PDFs, and commit to informing us if there is an update such as a correction or retraction. They also send additional metadata such as authors’ ORCIDs and the funders behind the research.
When a reader clicks on the button a pop-up box appears that headlines the current status of the content: up-to-date, updates available, or retracted, and also displays all of the additional information. Watch the video below to find out more:
