Playing with CrossRef event data at WikiCite 2017, see also etherpad.

Getting a stream

To get 100 events for GBIF DOIs (prefix 10.15468):

https://query.eventdata.crossref.org/events?rows=100&filter=prefix%3A10.15468

Getting events for one DOI

Events involving GBIF backbone

https://query.eventdata.crossref.org/events?filter=work:10.15468/39omei

Events

The things that mentions a DOI is the subject, the DOI it mentions is the object.

Relationships

is_previous_version_of

DOIs for articles and GBIF datasets for that data are linked by is_previous_version_of relationship.

is_part_of

For example, the Zootaxa DOI https://doi.org/10.11646/zootaxa.4263.2.8 is linked to Zenodo DOIs (e.g., https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.573168) via this relationship (e.g., figures extracted by Plaza)

Example events

GBIF DOI linked to paper DOI

This paper has a CrossRef DOI 10.5431/aramit5205

Lissner, J., & Bosmans, R. (2016, September 30). Description of a newGibbaranea(Araneae: Araneidae) from the Western Mediterranean. Arachnologische Mitteilungen. Arachnologische Gesellschaft e.v. https://doi.org/10.5431/aramit5205

This event 003fcaa7-af8a-458a-b584-3aabd2c8924b links the GBIF download DOI 10.15468/dl.28rkpl to the article 10.5431/aramit5205.

}

Ah, now I see. The paper 10.5431/aramit5205 doesn't mention GBIF, but the GBIF dataset Description of a new Gibbaranea (Araneae: Araneidae) from the Western Mediterranean has the same DOI and also the alternative identifier 10.15468/ijsonr

<dataset>
<alternateIdentifier>doi:10.5431/aramit5205</alternateIdentifier>
<alternateIdentifier>doi:10.15468/ijsonr</alternateIdentifier>
<alternateIdentifier>FFB60C131215FF9FFFFAFFA0EA6DFFE9</alternateIdentifier>
</dataset>

So, anyone downloading this dataset will generate an event linking the article DOI to a GBIF data. We can get these same links via the GBIF API.

Citations in journal metadata

The GBIF Backbone is cited by http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10841-016-9939-x, and this can be seen in the DOI record for this article:

https://api.crossref.org/v1/works/http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s10841-016-9939-x

{
	"key": "9939_CR26",

Unfortunately at the moment we can't query the CrossRef API for articles that cite a given DOI. I discovered this article citation via Google Scholar.
