COUNTER-compliant usage statistics for libraries
Project Euclid provides all institutional subscribers with COUNTER-compliant usage statistics. The COUNTER code of practice specifies common methods of recording and exchanging online usage data. The provision of such data is increasingly expected of online publishers.
Visit our Library usage statistics page for more information.
DOI registration via CrossRef
Project Euclid, as a sponsoring member of CrossRef, can acquire individual DOI prefixes for publishers and automatically deposit DOIs with CrossRef on behalf of its publishers. DOIs are displyed on article abstract pages.
Cross linking to MathSciNet (Math Reviews) and zbMATH
Project Euclid automatically builds links from articles to the indexing and reviewing services MathSciNet (Math Reviews) and zbMATH. For any article in Project Euclid without such links, the system performs regular, automated "lookups." If a match is discovered, the link is made available on the Euclid abstract page. In addition, Project Euclid works closely with both these services to ensure that they include links back to Euclid.
Email alerts and RSS feeds
Users can register to follow publications by receiving an emailed table of contents when a new issue is published. They can also sign up to ingest new issues or articles of any publication in their RSS feeds.
Using automated processes, Project Euclid extracts and parses article reference sections, performs article lookups in remote databases, and provides outbound links when available. The results are displayed in an article's "References" tab.
Publishers may sell individual articles or book chapters to non-subscribers on a pay-per-view (PPV) basis. When available, a user clicks the "Buy Article" button on the article abstract page, provides credit card information, and receives access to download the article once payment is confirmed. PPV prices are determined by the publisher.
Project Euclid facilitates print-on-demand (POD) options for select content through multiple outside vendors. This service is available for individual monographs and journal issues, and it is the only way to purchase print through Project Euclid. Please contact us if you are interested in offering this service.
Flexible open access settings
Publishers can elect to set automatic open access windows as well as open up individual journal issues or articles as needed.
Dynamic publication home pages
Each title's landing page displays a dynamic list of the top downloaded articles or chapters over the last seven days. To allow editors and publishers to highlight information of interest to readers and authors, an optional text box is also available to display, for example, special notices, citation statistics, impact factors, indexes, scope statements, or calls for papers.
Featured article discovery widget
The featured article box allows publishers to showcase a link to a notable article by displaying the title, article, and abstract on the title’s home page.
Publisher home pages
In addition to their publication sites, every publisher has a home page providing details about the organization, a link to its website, a list of its publications on Euclid, and the week's top downloads. Additional notices can be posted to this page.
Ahead-of-print and online first publication
Project Euclid supports a variety of advance publication options, including:
- listing titles of accepted papers
- posting forthcoming papers in their accepted or final form ahead of print publication
- continuous publication of growing issues
Special issue titles
Themed issues can be displayed with special titles on table of contents pages. Notices of special issues can also be displayed on the publication's landing page.
Support for attractive math on the web, via MathJax and MathML
Project Euclid has implemented MathJax across our entire site, and supports MathML as well. This means that math expressions will be attractively displayed when they appear on our web pages. Visit our MathJax page for more information.
Our article- and chapter-level metadata can capture and display detailed (optional) publication information, including:
- dates publication was received, revised, and accepted
- notes for acknowledging funding sources or collaborators
- rights and licensing terms
Support for supplemental materials
Publishers may provide supplemental materials (charts, figures, data sets, etc.) to those users with access to the article full text.
Forward and backward linking, article cross references
Articles can be linked to later corrections (forward linking), and the correction to its original article (backward linking). Cross references ("see also" links) to other articles or chapters, in Euclid or not, can be included.
Support for multilingual article data
Project Euclid supports the capture and display of multilingual descriptive metadata.
