CrossMark policy

CrossMark is a multi-publisher initiative from the CrossRef organisation to provide a standard way for readers to locate the authoritative version of a document. SolarLits recognizes the importance of the integrity and completeness of the scholarly record to researchers and librarians and attaches the highest importance to maintaining trust in the authority of its electronic archive. Applying the CrossMark icon is a commitment by SolarLits to maintain the content published and alert readers to changes if and when they occur. Clicking on the CrossMark icon will inform the reader of the current status of a document and may also provide additional publication record information about the document.

For more information on CrossMark, please visit the CrossMark site – http://www.crossref.org/crossmark/

The SolarLits content that will have the CrossMark icon is restricted to current and future journal content and only on content hosted by official SolarLits websites. Articles in Press will not have the CrossMark icon for the present.
