Update Policy with Crossmark Last Update : 2020-11-01 15:04:28

All Kowsar journals enabled with Crossmark

The CrossMark logo is a commitment by Kowsar to update the content published and alert readers in case of any change occurred in an article. 

Crossmark gives readers quick and easy access to the current status of an item of content. 

If a secondary and related article (like retraction note, corrigendum, letter, reply, ...) accepted for a primary article, authors will be informed using the Crossmark facility and able to track it using a notification. The Kowsar content with CrossMark logo is restricted to specific journal contents and limited to specific publication types (like original articles, review articles, and brief reports). 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.

These article type could be linked to the source article using a Crossmark logo even after publishing:

  • Corrections
  • Supplementary data
  • Letter to the Editor
  • Retractions
  • Reply
  • adding ORCID
  • funding data
  • license details
  • Clinical trial registration data
  • peer review information

  • It provides a standard way to communicate this information to readers and shows the publisher's ongoing commitment to stewarding the content.
  • It increases the trust between readers and journals
