The Crossref database provides access to more than 97 million records across a range of types. These types are different to ComWriter so we have mapped them into our schema to ensure references are more accurate (see Table below). There are also a number of sorting options provided (see Table below). 

 

To find articles

1. Click on the research tab

2. 'View' is the default on the navigation pane for this page

3. Your default style guide will display here.

10. Click on the checkbox next to the item(s) you want to import and then, using the drop lists, 'Add selected to collections or projects' to activate the import

11. Always check the imported data as we cannot guarantee that the data have been imported correctly as it depends on how the publisher provides data to Crossref
