CrossRef Invites You to its Labs

Geoffrey Bilder, director of strategic initiatives at CrossRef, announced in October 2009 the creation of CrossRef Labs website, <http://labs.crossref.org>, which will be the home for some of the prototypes and experiments that CrossRef is developing. Bilder wrote: “Here you can find links to various tools and services that either make it easier to use CrossRef services (e.g., Blog/Ubiquity plugins and OpenSearch Description files) or that serve to illustrate a concept that has been of interest to our members (InChI lookup, TOI-DOIs).”

Of particular interest to IUPAC circles is the InChI lookup. The idea is to create a mechanism that would allow CrossRef publishers to record InChIs in their submitted CrossRef metadata. This, in turn, would allow CrossRef to provide a service that allows users to look up the published articles that mention a particular InChI, and look up the InChIs mentioned in a published article.

Users should be aware that the CrossRef Labs home page has the following admonition: “Most of the experiments linked to here are running on R&D equipment in a nonproduction environment. They may disappear without warning and/or perform erratically. If one of them isn’t working for some reason, come back later and try again.”

CrossRef is a not-for-profit membership association whose mission is to enable easy identification and use of trustworthy electronic content by promoting the cooperative development and application of a sustainable infrastrusture.
