Crossref Books Interest Group

  1. 1. Books Interest Group April Ondis The (only slightly) Mad Marketer aondis@crossref.org and @Aprilelah
  2. 2. Show of hands … How many of you are book publishers?
  3. 3. Books Interest Group - aka “Notorious B.I.G.” This group was active on and off between 2006-2015, and was newly revived in March 2016. Why? DOI Assignment and Reference Linking in Scholarly Books is the fastest growing content type for Crossref, with more than 10 million book DOIs registered for about 705,952 titles.
  4. 4. Books Interest Group - aka “Notorious B.I.G.” But … Book metadata deposits are still rare in comparison to the corpus of scholarly books being published.
  5. 5. Mission of the Books Interest Group: • Maximize reference linking among books and other Crossref content types • Enhance the discovery, visibility, and usage of book content
  6. 6. Why should books have DOIs? So glad you asked! Here are a few benefits of depositing book DOIs with Crossref:
  7. 7. Book DOIs enhance content discovery • Book publishers who provide reference links from their online books increase the connections between their content and others’, and contributing to improved content discovery through citations in books.
  8. 8. Articles cite books … … and books cite articles! Together, both enhance your Cited By counts.
  9. 9. Book references are trackable … … even outside the formal scholarly literature. The new Event Data service will collect information about how and where book DOIs are shared on the web, including social shares such as tweets and Facebook likes, as well as saves to Scholarly Collaboration Networks like Mendeley, etc.
  10. 10. You can maximize your membership Your single annual membership fee covers all types of content. If you are already depositing DOIs for journals or articles, there is no additional membership fee to register your books (you simply pay the usual fee for depositing DOIs).
  11. 11. DOIs point wherever you point them Use your DOI to drive book sales. Your books will benefit from being registered with a Crossref DOI that points to the online retail platform of your choice.
  12. 12. Books Interest Group Proposed Best Practices
  13. 13. Best Practices for Depositing & Linking Books Food for thought: Citation styles and conventions for books certainly vary from field to field. Some disciplines may principally reference book titles, others may also cite journal articles and book chapters. 1. Deposit Crossref DOIs at both the title and chapter/entry level.
  14. 14. Best Practices for Depositing & Linking Books 2. Add outbound links from references in books. 3. Deposit references from books with Crossref to enable Cited-by Linking.
  15. 15. Best Practices for Depositing & Linking Books 4. Ask authors to cite specific chapters and entries using page numbers, chapter/entry titles and Crossref DOIs. 5. Update editorial guidelines: Ask copyeditors to look for page numbers and chapter titles in book citations.
  16. 16. You can B.I.G. (Be In the Group) … The B.I.G. is currently about 30 members, with about 12 regularly active. Current chair is Emily Ayubi of APA, working closely with Tim McAdoo of APA. We meet every other month via a GoToMeeting call. Our next meeting is Wednesday, September 7 at 11:00 am Eastern Time.
