1. The Odessa national academy of food technologies
More than one hundred years ago, in 1902, the school of millers was establish in Odessa for training millers and grain processing engineers for the South of the Ukraine. The first graduation took place in 1905. In 1909 according to the Tsar Edict the School was transformed to the Technical High School that in 1922 was reorganized by the Soviet Decree into the Technical College. In 1929 the College was reformed in the Institute of Grain and Flour Technology with 5 faculties such as Technological, Mechanical, Bakery Production, Mixed Fodder Production and Engineering faculties. Subsequently the Institute has been renamed to Odessa Technological Institute and then to Odessa State Academy of Food Technologies.
In 1993, our institution, one of the first in the Ukraine has been accredited for the highest, 4th level of accreditation. In 2002 our Academy has received the status of the National one.
In 2004 the Assembly of Business Circles of Europe (Oxford, England) has awarded our Academy the premium of the «European quality» for successful achievement of the European standards of quality in providing the educational services.

5. Association of scholarly publishers
Mission statement: "CrossRef's goal is to be a trusted collaborative organization with broad community connections; authoritative and innovative in support of a persistent, sustainable infrastructure for scholarly communication."
CrossRef's general purpose is to promote the development and cooperative use of new and innovative technologies to speed and facilitate scholarly research. CrossRef's specific mandate is to be the citation linking backbone for all scholarly information in electronic form. CrossRef is a collaborative reference linking service that functions as a sort of digital switchboard. It holds no full text content, but rather effects linkages through CrossRef Digital Object Identifiers (CrossRef DOI), which are tagged to article metadata supplied by the participating publishers. The end result is an efficient, scalable linking system through which a researcher can click on a reference citation in a journal and access the cited article.
At the beginning of 2000, the world's leading scholarly publishers joined to form the non-profit, independent organization, Publishers International Linking Association, Inc. (PILA), which operates CrossRef.
Among the visitors to the Frankfurt Book Fair in October of 1999 who witnessed the demonstration of the DOI-X project, there were several representatives of the leading scientific, technical, and medical publishers. Recognizing that this prototype of a lookup system based on the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) held the key to a broad-based and efficient journal reference linking system, they took the unusual step of joining together as the non-profit, independent Publishers International Linking Association Inc. (PILA), which was incorporated in January 2000 and CrossRef went live as the first collaborative reference linking service in June 2000.
