Healthcare Bulletin Joins CrossRef Cited-by Linking


In an exciting new development, Healthcare Bulletin now participates in CrossRef's Cited-by Linking Service. This service allows CrossRef member publishers to display links on an article page to other articles that cite that particular document.

London-based, Healthcare Bulletin joins over 200 publishers that deposit references from their scholarly content and display citing links from CrossRef publishers back to that content.

CrossRef Cited-by Linking (previously known as Forward Linking) has grown steadily since its inception in 2006. Currently, almost 20% of the 44 million CrossRef DOIs deposited also have their references available to create Cited-by Links. A total of more than 125 million Cited-by Links exist among participating publishers. Nearly 17 million CrossRef DOIs have at least one Cited-by Link referencing them.
