Applying the CrossMark icon is a commitment by Al-DYAS to maintain the content published and alert readers to changes if and when they occur.
What is Crossmark?
Crossmark is a multi-publisher initiative from CrossRef to provide a standard way for readers to locate the authoritative version of a document. Al-DYAS understands the importance of the integrity and completeness of a scholarly record to researchers as well as to Librarians. Al-DYAS strives to maintain this trust in its electronic archive. Clicking on the CrossMark icon will inform the reader about the current status of the document. It could also contain additional information about publication too.
Al-DYAS content and Crossmark
Al-DYAS content which will display Crossmark is restricted to current and future journal content and is also limited to specific publication types. Articles which are published as Articles in Press or Online First will not have the CrossMark icon at present.
