Email for Citation Search

Within the Configuration settings, what benefit / or what is the purpose of providing an “Email to use for citation search” within the area for “Production”?

@dbvisel can you indicate the purpose of this field?

Hi! This is mostly provided as a measure of politeness to CrossRef: their API is unrestricted, but if there are problems they may want to contact the user. The API request indicates that it’s coming from a Kotahi installation; the email is a way they could contact you if they needed to do so.

ah, ok. Thank you!
