The end result is an efficient, scalable linking system through which a researcher can click on a reference citation in a journal and access the cited article.
CrossRef citation-linking network today covers over 67 million journal articles and other content items (books chapters, data, theses, technical reports) from thousands of scholarly and professional publishers around the globe.
