Industry standards

We closely monitor community feedback and work in partnership with industry bodies to promote publishing industry standards. Some of the steps we have taken include:

  • Using Crossref and DOIs (digital object identifiers) to provide reference linking services
  • Introducing OpenAthens software so users can authenticate subscription access to our databases
  • Following OpenURL industry standards
  • Complying with COUNTER 5 requirements
  • Ensuring databases are compatible with reference management software such as EndNote and RefWorks
  • Supporting the principles of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics)
  • Supplying book industry standard metadata by ONIX (V2.1 and V3.0)
  • Active membership of organisations like BIC (Book Industry Communication) and IPG (Independent Publishers’ Guild)
