When depositing metadata to Crossref, we recommend enriching this as much as possible, including at least the following:
- full author / contributor information (full names (instead of using first name initials) and contributor roles)
- ORCID IDs
- author affiliations (incl. city and country, plus canonical organization IDs, such as ROR IDs)
- references (incl. their DOIs if available)
- structured funding information and grants references
While not strictly necessary for indexing, this improves the presentation of your publications in Dimensions and allows us to do further data processing, such as disambiguating authors and their affiliated organizations and locations, extracting citations and categorizing the articles into specific fields of research.
