DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 9th July 2017 — Knowledge E has become a Crossref Sponsoring Publisher.
Being a sponsoring publisher means that Knowledge E can now provide Crossref services to scholarly societies and small publishers. Most academic societies and university presses in the Middle East are not Crossref members and Knowledge E can now expand the scope of their publishing service. Including providing administrative, billing, technical and language support.
Knowledge E and Crossref are actively evaluating opportunities to provide live events that will encourage greater use of Crossref services including anti-plagiarism checks, reference linking, Crossmark, metadata delivery and others. See the Crossref website for more information: https://www.crossref.org
