About the Crossmark category

The Crossmark button gives readers quick and easy access to the current status of an item of content, including any corrections, retractions, or updates to that record.

With one click, you can see if content has been updated, corrected, or retracted, and access valuable additional metadata provided by the member, such as key publication dates (submission, revision, acceptance), authors’ ORCID iDs, content type, plagiarism screening status, and information about funding, license, peer review, and location of research data.

Crossmark is recognizable across all content, and gives members a way to provide evidence to readers of why they should trust the content; so they can use it and cite it with confidence.

From January 2020 we have removed fees for participating in this service. You can read more about this service, as well as accessing multi-lingual factsheets and short videos, in our education documentation on our website.
