Hello - for the next part of the agenda we’ll be providing Crossref updates and I’m very pleased that we’ll be hearing from Crossref two newest directors - Ginny Hendricks and Jennifer Lin. My theme today is growth and change at Crossref. Crossref is celebrating its 15th year - and this is actually the 16th Annual Meeting - and I’ve been to every single one - actually - the time has flown by - it’s been really interesting - things are always changing - and the pace of change is accelerating
So first of all I want to talk about the people at Crossref - they make everything happen. The team has grown but it has also changed - within a couple of weeks we will have 29 people - up 21% from 2014. Of those 29 - 9 of them - or 31% are new since last year - so we’ve got a lot of new blood. But importantly we’ve made strategic changes to our structure by creating to new director positions we’ve re-organized their teams.
Here is a high level view of our new structure - member and community outreach and product management are the two new teams and there are various new positions within those teams.
Here is our current ORG chart - the slides will be available online after the meeting if you want to look at this in detail. For 2016 we have three new positions budgeted - 2 developers - we are doing new things and enhancing and improving the existing services and system and a Relationship Manager to work with our Affiliates and the new Service Level Agreement models with DET and the Crossref API
And here is almost all the team at a staff dinner last night plotting world domination.

• Nominating Committee proposed the slate of board
candidates - includes general members
How to get involved?
• Committees: Membership & Fees, CrossCheck, CrossMark,
Text and Data Mining, DET, DUL
• Working Groups: Taxonomy, Linked Clinical Trials,
Standards Technical, Book Interest Group, Funder Advisory
• In July the board voted to accept preprints
• Updated rules being reviewed tomorrow
• Clarify best practice for:
• Assigning DOIs to preprints and requirements for clear labelling
and to link to published version - privilege the Version of Record
• Assigning CR DOIs at acceptance and maintaining the same CR
DOI for the formally published version.
• Assigning separate DOIs to duplicative and derivative content
such as re-publications, translations, annotated copies, etc.
• Changing a name - renaming FundRef - will use funding
data and the Crossref Open Funder Registry
• “FundRef” caused confusion - many thought it was
separate from Crossref or a separate system.
• Took focus away from all the metadata we are now
collecting including: funder ID and grant number,
authenticated ORCID iDs, licenses (embargoes), full text
URL for TDM, CrossMark metadata, abstracts

website; new manual deposit process, DET, DUL, Linked
Clinical Trials, ORCID Auto Update, Participation Reports,
international outreach, etc.
Collaboration & Engagement
• Institutional Identifiers - ORCID, DataCite and others
• I believe there is an opportunity for the scholarly community to come
together and address the challenge of providing a stable persistent
identifier for institutions. This conversation should clearly involve the
existing stakeholders I have listed above. But a standard alone is
insufficient for success; both ORCID and CrossRef demonstrate the
need for organisational infrastructure, services and outreach in order
to drive uptake and ensure success.

• More (thoughtful) change
