Scholastica, a peer review and publishing platform for academic journals, has announced that journals using Scholastica for open access publishing can now set up automated DOI registration and metadata deposits via Crossref.
With the new automation, publishers can eliminate all manual and technical work around content registration and improve their article discoverability. Scholastica's software automatically registers DOIs for all articles under the publisher's Crossref prefix and submits core machine-readable metadata to Crossref, so articles can more easily be found by readers and discovery services. Journal publishers that use Scholastica's open access publishing platform and have a Crossref membership can set up automated Crossref content registration through Scholastica at no additional cost.
The new automation is part of Scholastica's ongoing efforts to modernise all aspects of the publishing process to make publishing high-quality open access journals at an affordable cost a sustainable reality for publishers of any size.
Crossref content registration offers many benefits for journal publishers and the wider scholarly community. In addition to creating unique identifiers for journal articles, so readers and discovery services can always locate the official versions, Crossref registration makes it easier for articles to be discovered online.
The new Crossref DOI registration automation is available to any journal using Scholastica's open access publishing platform that is a Crossref member and has been issued a DOI prefix. Publishers interested in setting up automated DOI registrations for their journals can do so via their Scholastica publishing account settings, or contact Scholastica with any questions.
