CrossRef Renews Relationship with Atypon for the Development of a New Query System

by | Nov 9, 2009 | 0 comments

Atypon Systems, Inc. and CrossRef today announced that CrossRef has selected Atypon to develop and support a new query system for its reference linking service, continuing a relationship that began eight years ago.
CrossRef’s query system allows publishers, libraries, and affiliates such as abstracting and indexing organizations to submit metadata representing scholarly content and retrieve CrossRef Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to be used for building persistent links to important scholarly content.
Atypon also developed and supports the current query system. The number of queries has grown from 10 million in 2003 to more than 281 million to date in 2009. At the same time, the percentage of queries resulting in a match has tripled from 18% to 55%.
Building on the experiences of the last ten years, the new query system will employ a more scalable architecture to increase capacity and to ensure effective query response times as demand increases. Both organizations will own the intellectual property of the system, and Atypon will provide ongoing development and support.
