In case you haven’t heard the news, ROR is now supported in the Crossref schema! With this update and the previous DataCite schema update, ROR IDs can now be included in DOI metadata for a wide range of research outputs - exciting!
At the moment, ROR is supported in direct XML deposits. ROR is not yet supported in Crossref’s Web Deposit Form, OJS plugin, or REST API, but work is underway and will be completed later in 2021.
Resources for those looking to include ROR IDs in DOI metadata:
- Crossref schema v5.3.0 release notes
- Crossref schema v5.3.0 Journal article example XML
- ROR support guide to including ROR IDs in DOI metadata
Also, Crossref and ROR will be co-hosting a webinar 29 Sep: Working with ROR as a Crossref member: what you need to know. Join us to learn more about ROR in the Crossref schema and services!
