2 thoughts on “Test Driving the CrossRef Simple-Text Query Tool for Finding DOIs”

  1. Thanks for the feedback. There are a number of different sides to this – “No DOI Match Found” means that the reference was understood but there is no DOI for the item. “Reference not parsed” means that for some reason the reference couldn’t be understood – we are looking into why this happened for these references (all but the first 2 didn’t parse).

    In terms of Open Access material it has to be registered with CrossRef for us to find the DOI for it. “The Public-Access Computer System Review” is not in CrossRef but “D-Lib” is so we are looking at that.

    I would agree that the strength of CrossRef’s coverage and therefore the Simple Text Query is in mainstream journal references.

  2. Thanks for your reply. I tried a dozen references from a section (3.4 Electronic Serials: General Works) that has fewer non-conventional references and had better luck.
