After announcing our support of the Initiative for Open Citations I4OC earlier this year, InTechOpen is excited to announce that our reference data is available through Crossref’s Cited-by linking services.

Participation in Cited-by enables authors, editors and readers to see which Crossref content is citing InTechOpen published content, and will allow our authors to track their chapter and book statistics in real-time with email alerts each time content is cited. 

By depositing our reference data, Crossref is able to match the metadata in the references to DOIs, establishing Cited-by "database relationships" and creating links to cited content. 

With Cited-by readers are able to navigate from an InTechOpen chapter to a paper citing that chapter, and see not only the content that is being cited but also how frequently. This will open up and enable the potential for further collaboration and research relationships. Also, with the ability to easily navigate to related works, Cited-by helps researchers discover content that is relevant to their own work.

We are excited to join the list of over 200 publishers participating in the service and in making citation data more readily available to our researchers.
