CatchWord provides linking technology that enables Taylor & Francis
CrossRef participation

Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK. 7th February 2000

It was announced today at the AAP/PSP meeting in Washington DC, that
CatchWord will be providing the Taylor & Francis Group with the technical
infrastructure to take them into CrossRef.

CrossRef is a joint initiative by leading scientific and scholarly
publishers to provide a service that will seamlessly link journal
citations to the appropriate full text resource. CrossRef is scheduled to
launch during the first quarter of this year.

Taylor & Francis, one of the world's largest journal publishers, announced
in December that they would be joining the initiative.   CatchWord already
provides active reference linking for over 450 of the Taylor and Francis
journals and migrating the linking capability to encompass CrossRef is a
straightforward process.

"CatchWord recognised the value of active reference linking when we
developed the technology to do it in 1997," said Simon Inger, Managing
Director, CatchWord.  "The fact that so many leading publishers are now
working together in CrossRef is a significant step forward and is
extremely exciting for the research community.  We are delighted that we
are able to provide the technology to take Taylor & Francis into this
project and are looking forward to being part of such an important
initiative. Because our innovative production process is consistent for
all the content we process and host, we can take any of the publishers we
represent into CrossRef."
