The collective power of our members’ metadata is available to use through a variety of tools and APIs—allowing anyone to search and reuse the metadata in sophisticated ways.
Members register content with us to let the world know it exists. They send us information called metadata which we collect and store in a standard way. We make this metadata openly available via our APIs, which means people and machines can incorporate it in their research tools and services.
To retrieve metadata from Crossref, you do not need to be a member. We have various options for retrieving metadata - some are more suitable for human use, and some for machine use.
Please use this category for general questions and discussion about Crossref metadata retrieval and usage.
