Ginny Hendricks

Since 2015, Ginny has been developing a community team at Crossref encompassing outreach and education, member experience and support, and metadata strategy. Before joining Crossref, she ran Ardent Marketing for a decade, where she consulted within scholarly communications on multichannel awareness and growth strategies, branding and launching online products, and building engaged communities. She previously led Elsevier’s launch of Scopus, where she established content selection criteria, advisory boards, and outreach programs with library and scientific communities. Most recently she founded the Metadata 2020 collaboration to advocate for richer, connected, reusable and open metadata for the benefit of society. She’s lived and worked in many parts of the world, has managed globally dispersed creative, technical, and commercial teams, and co-hosts the Scholarly Social networking events in London, UK.

What are there 80 million of?

As of this week, there are 80,000,000 scholarly¬†items¬†registered with Crossref! By the way,¬†we update these interesting Crossref stats regularly and you can search the metadata. The 80 millionth scholarly item is [drumroll…]¬†Management Approaches in Beihagi History¬†from the journal Oman Chapter of Arabian Journal of Business and Management Review, published by Al Manhal¬†in the United Arab Emirates. There have been loads of changes¬†since Wiley registered “Designer selves: Construction of technologically mediated identity within graphical, multiuser virtual environments” with the DOI http://dx.

Request for Community Comment: registering content before online availability

Crossref is proposing a process to support the registration of content—including DOIs and other metadata—prior to that content being made available, or published, online. We‚Äôve drafted a paper providing background on the reasons we¬†want to support this and highlighting the use cases. One of the main needs¬†is in journal publishing to support registration of Accepted Manuscripts immediately on or shortly after acceptance, and dealing with press embargoes.Proposal doc for community comment

The logo has landed

Crossref_Logo_Stacked_RGB_SMALLThe rebranding of Crossref was top priority when I joined in May in a¬†new role called¬†“Director of Member & Community Outreach”. Since then I‚Äôve been working to understand the array of services, attributes, and audiences we have developed; to answer the questions “What do¬†we¬†do, for whom, and why?”

As Crossref prepares to¬†celebrate turning fifteen at our annual meeting next week, I am thrilled to present our new brand identity with¬†key messages and logo. And along with “thrilled” you may also detect¬†“nervous excitement”.

Crossref to Auto-Update ORCID Records

In the next few weeks, authors with an ORCID iD will be able to have Crossref automatically push information about their published work to their ORCID record. It’s something that ORCID users have been asking for and we’re pleased to be the first to develop the integration. 230 publishers already include ORCID iDs in their metadata deposits with us, and currently there are 248,000 DOIs that include ORCID iDs.
