CrossRef text and data mining service launching in May

(2 May 2014) In May 2014, CrossRef plans to launch its new text and data mining service. After a successful pilot under the name Prospect, CrossRef’s support for publishers to simplify text and data mining access for researchers involves two components:

  1. A CrossRef API researchers can use to access the full text of content identified by CrossRef DOIs across publisher sites and regardless of their business model.
  2. An optional click-through service that researchers and publishers can use as an efficient mechanism to provide “click-through” agreement of proprietary TDM licenses, if the publisher requires them.

Both components are free to use by researchers and the public.
