I am looking for the web deposit form to sign up for DOI for our journal.
I cant seem to find it and also cannot locate how much does it cost?
Thank you for your post.
If you do not have a prefix or account with Crossref then you would need to become a member with us to deposit the content.
Do let me know if you don’t have an account and we can send you over details on how to apply.
I hope this helps and if you have any further question or queries on this then please do not hesitate to contact us again.
I do not have a prefix as yet. Could you be kind enough to send me a step by step guide to acquire membership first so I can send the DOIs later?
