While submitting a paper to a journal of a famous publisher, the submission system added the following link in the top of my PDF file: "Click here to view linked References". When I clicked the link, I got to a page that says "The file '[my-file].pdf' is not eligible for Reference Checking and was not processed."

How can I make my PDF file eligible for reference checking?

    Probably... Although, there are some typesetting systems, are which even to able to trace the faulty references within the LaTeX files, such as wrong bibliographical references... – Roboticist Oct 9 '15 at 13:51

The applied references within your document might be faulty. This case is something common regarding the MS Word documents. But one could confront with such stuff even within working with LaTeX, where the references to some entry (tables, equations, bibliography etc) are not valid.

Hence, one could assert that you better check the document referencing.
