More facts about the Citation Alert
- Crossref is the only source of information used.
- Corresponding authors will be alerted promptly whenever their article is cited.
- The alert is hyperlinked to both the cited and the citing article (full text access depends on the reader’s license for Springer’s and the citing publisher’s content).
- The alert is sent immediately after Springer receives the data from Crossref.
- The time for data transfer from the citing publisher to Crossref varies greatly, from ca. 2-4 days up to ca. 2 months. Therefore the alert cannot be a real-time service.
- Springer notifies Crossref within 24 hours when we publish new articles. So new citations from Springer articles in other Springer articles will usually be alerted within 48 hours.
