Crossref Research Nexus vision image

At Crossref, our mission is not only about making research easier to find, cite, link, assess, and reuse. We are constantly widening our horizon to create special programs that focuses on different elements of the Research Nexus vision – a vision that aspires to create a rich, reusable open network of relationships connecting research elements for the benefit of society.

These programs focus on making connections between all kinds of research information, including journal articles, book chapters, grants, and preprints. We want to connect these different elements to make it easier for everyone involved in research to find and understand the information they need. We aim to involve everyone - like researchers, funding organizations, and governments - in building a better, more open network for sharing research.
