The basic bibliographic metadata we collect from our members is really useful in helping the identification and discovery of content.
However, there’s lots more to the metadata than that. We collect additional information from publishers that helps track and link research outputs to researchers, funders and institutions. This includes:
We’re also putting plans in place to allow publishers to register DOIs upon manuscript acceptance, even if the manuscript has not been made available online. This will help notify you and your institution of impending publications by your researchers as early in the process as possible.
This information is freely available for you to use and integrate into your own systems via our REST API and search interfaces. We have a detailed guide on what this information looks like in our metadata to help you search, facet or filter the metadata.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions: we’d be happy to provide help, advice or update you on publisher uptake and our future plans.
