CrossMark Policy

CrossMark is a multi-publisher initiative to provide a standard way for readers to locate the authoritative version of an article or other published content. By applying the CrossMark logo, Journal of Contemporary Urban Affairs is committing to maintain the content it publishes and to alert readers to changes if and when they occur. Clicking the CrossMark logo on a document will tell you its current status and may also give you additional publication-record information about the document.


Journal of Contemporary Urban Affairs’ content that will have the CrossMark logo is restricted to current (vol 5 no 1) and future issues and is limited to specific publication types. There are 12 defined types of accepted “update” within Crossmark. The values for these are:

  1. addendum
