CrossMark enables journals with a DOI to display article updates through a separate CrossMark button. This feature allows readers to easily find the current status of each article. This plugin displays various details, such as the list of authors, article submission date, and the article’s update status.

Steps to activate CrossMark:
1. First, create a page, preferably named “crossmark-policy.” The sample content for this page is as follows:

CrossMark Policy

CrossMark is a multi-publisher initiative to provide a standard way for readers to locate the authoritative version of an article or other published content. By applying the CrossMark logo, Rovedar is committing to maintaining the content it publishes and to alerting readers to changes if and when they occur.

Clicking the CrossMark logo on a document will tell you its current status and may also give you additional publication-record information about the document. The Rovedar content that will have the CrossMark logo is restricted to current and future journal content and is limited to specific publication types.

For more information on CrossMark, please visit the CrossMark site.

2. Next, you can create your XML file using the free service called “CrossMark XML Generator” provided by Rovedar :


3. Finally, you just need to inform your developer or support team to add the following code to your website:

<a class="crossmark_button ml-auto" data-target="crossmark">
    <img src="https://crossmark-cdn.crossref.org/widget/v2.0/logos/CROSSMARK_Color_horizontal.svg" width="150" />

In case you encounter any questions or issues while adding the code to your website in the final step, please feel free to contact us through the following form. We are here to assist you and provide you with the comprehensive services of our website.
