Title: Forward Linking: Adding Value to Content

Forward Linking Adding Value to Content
The vast majority of scholarly journals are now
online, and there have been a number of studies
of what features scholars find most valuable in
e-journals. Seamless linking to and from
citations, the original articles cited, and
bibliographic databases always ranks extremely
highly. DOI and CrossRef provide an
increasingly flexible way of enriching scholarly
literature online with actionable and persistent
links. -- Sally Morris, Chief Executive of the
Association of Learned and Professional Society
Ed Pentz, Executive Director
