Cited-by participation

Steps for participation in Cited-by

  1. Deposit references: References can be submitted as part of a metadata deposit or as a reference-only deposit. See adding references to your metadata record for details.
  2. Request that Cited-by is enabled: Contact our support team who will confirm that you’re registering references, and will enable Cited-by for your prefix(es).
  3. Query for Cited-by links: Cited-by matches can be retrieved via XML or HTTPS querying. It’s also possible to do this manually using the admin tool - go to the Queries tab, then the Cited-by Links tab, and search for one DOI at a time. Learn more about retrieving Cited-by matches.
  4. Display Cited-by links on your DOI landing pages: Once retrieved, Cited-by links should be included on DOI landing pages, as in this example:
