The overall resolution failure rate for all publishers is 2% and your failure rate is 6%. These failures may result from deposit errors by the publisher or from linking errors being made by end users. If your rate is significantly above zero or the overall average please investigate to determine the cause.

CrossRef has created a system to automatically email publishers statistics on the number of DOI resolutions through the DOI proxy server ( on a month-by-month basis. These numbers give an indication of the use of your DOIs and the traffic coming to your site from users clicking DOIs. The DOI links are largely from links in other publishers' journal references to your articles, but they are also from DOI links in secondary databases, links from libraries using DOIs, and even DOIs in used in print versions.

When a researcher clicks on a DOI link for one of your articles, that counts as one DOI resolution. A DOI resolution is when a DOI is "clicked" - for example, clicking on counts as one resolution to Nature. No information is captured about who the user is or where they are coming from. The information on DOI resolutions is captured by the web server logs on which is run by CNRI on behalf of the International DOI Foundation. These numbers are not a precise measure of traffic to your site - cached articles, search engine crawlers not following re-direction and traffic that is directed to a locally appropriate copy through a library link resolver would be included in these numbers, but would not result in inbound traffic on your website. Nevertheless, these numbers provide one important measure of the effectiveness of your participation in CrossRef.

In March 2004, the report on DOI resolutions through the main proxy server was updated. This report now tracks the number of DOI resolutions based on the owner of a DOI:

Top 10 DOIs is a list of the most popular DOIs that were successfully looked up and how many times each was looked up.

Resolution attempts is the same at total "Resolutions" above.

Resolved at handle is the number of resolutions that successfully looked up at

Handle failures is the number of resolutions that failed to look up at, either due to a technical problem or because the DOIs did not exist.

Resolved at local link server counts resolutions that were looked up at local link servers.

Unique DOIs attempted is the number of unique DOIs represented in the total "resolutions attempted" from above.

Unique DOIs resolved at handle is the number of unique DOIs represented in the "resolved at handle" count from above.

Unique DOIs that failed at handle is the number of unique DOIs represented in the "handle failures" count from above.

Unique DOIs resolved at local link server is the number of unique DOIs represented in the "resolved at local link server" count from above.

The attached file, if present, contains all of the DOIs that failed to resolve followed by the count indicating the number of times that DOI was attempted.

"na" - means that data is not available for that month and type.
