Thank you for your effort.  I just too a quick look into Crossref, and
was feeling a bit disappointed of the provided data.  I'm in the field
of Software Engineering/Formal Verification and the examples I checked
were not of a very high quality.

If it doesn't need too much work, I would suggest to query DBLP [1]
especially for publications in computer science.  They have more than
3.3 million publications only from computer science in their index, and
edit the entry's data to increase the level of comprehensiveness.  The
same might hold for other disciplines and sources.
