Pending publications markup guide

Prior learning: Introduction to pending publications

This page gives markup examples for members registering pending publications by direct deposit of XML. It is not currently possible to register the pending publications content type using one of our helper tools.

How to make changes to records

How to update records - for Crossmark users

Crossmark service users can add the withdrawal to the Crossmark metadata as a scholarly update assertion (using the update type withdrawal). Update the landing page by updating the metadata record you provide us, using the same DOI in the assertion. See example of a full deposit for an XML example. If you choose, you can publish a separate update, and then link to the new DOI in the Crossmark metadata.

The green banner saying Manuscript has been accepted will change to a red banner saying Accepted manuscript has been withdrawn. See the following withdrawn pending publication example landing page with its associated metadata deposit.

How to update records - for non Crossmark users

Our system will not be able to identify your pending publication as withdrawn, which means the green Manuscript has been accepted banner will remain on the landing page. Therefore it is critical that you write a clear statement about the withdrawal in the Intent to Publish statement. The Intent to Publish statement is supplied in the XML element - see the default Intent to publish statement message below.

Customizations

You can personalize the display of the Crossref-hosted landing page with the following information:

  • member/society/journal logo
  • custom wording for the intent to publish statement
  • display of all provided optional extra metadata such as article title, funder identifiers, ORCID iDs, license information
  • Crossmark to handle the rare occasions when a member rescinds acceptance.

If you’d like to display a custom logo on your pending publication landing page, please email us the logo, and include your member name, prefix, and a note indicating that the logo is to be used for pending publication. We accept both JPEG and PNG files (dimensions should be 112px by 112px).

Intent to publish statement

This is the default intent to publish statement shown on the landing page:

This paper has been accepted for publication so its publisher has pre-registered a Crossref DOI. This persistent identifier and link [DOI INSERTED HERE] can already be shared by authors and readers, as it will redirect to the published article when available.

We encourage you to provide your own custom statement in the metadata which will replace the default statement.

The intent to publish statement can be used to convey any information you’d like to share about the forthcoming publication event (such as process, timeline). In the event that you delay publication or withdraw the publication, this statement may be very informative for your community - both the readers on your platform as well as the systems that consume Crossref metadata.

Metadata reference examples for pending publication

Here are three examples of pending publication records. The full record contains the full range of metadata accepted for pending publication. The basic record has the bare minimum metadata required. The withdrawn record is for a pending publication that the member has decided not to publish.

DOI Description Links
Full This record contains the full range of metadata accepted for a pending publication. Deposit XML, XML API
Basic This basic record contains only the required metadata for a pending publication. We apply the default Intent to Publish statement in the absence of a custom message. Here, some authors have ORCID iDs with affiliation data; others do not. Deposit XML, XML API
Withdrawn In this record of a withdrawn pending publication, the member has registered a pending publication and then updated the record to reflect the withdrawal. This example is an in situ scholarly update with no separate update published. Deposit XML, XML API
