Recent Key Developments

September 2014

CrossMark introduced onto CJO

The majority of articles on CJO are now verified by CrossMark, ensuring that our readers can trust that the scholarly research we provide is accurate and up-to-date.

Provided by CrossRef, the CrossMark initiative is designed to "help researchers decide what scholarly content to trust". The innovative service works by assigning a stamp of verification to scholarly research which provides a live record of the article's authenticity.

CJO has introduced another addition to the CrossRef family - the FundRef initiative, which allows authors to identify the funding bodies behind their research. Articles submitted via CJO can now detail funding information, pre-empting the work underway to incorporate FundRef functionality into all our manuscript submission systems which will follow later this year.

Article suggestion 

Readers are now able to discover related content by using the new ‘Other Users Also Downloaded the Following Articles During their Visit’ menu for selected journals, allowing them to find articles that are popular amongst peers. Learn more on our blog here.


'Subscribed to' content search

Improvements have been made to enhance CJO search, including the ability to browse only the content to which readers have access. This includes the addition of the quick and easy option to search ‘journal content I have access to’.
