OAI-PMH

Metadata for all Oxford Journals online content is harvestable via an OAI-PMH interface. Information for third parties migrating from bespoke data feeds to OAI-PMH is available here.

The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting is documented at http://www.openarchives.org

Example OAI-PMH requests

The protocol allows for selective harvesting through sets at the following levels:

  • set=OUP - all Oxford Journals records
  • set=journalcode:volume:issue - a specific journal, volume or issue
  • set=HighWire - all available HighWire records

All OUP journal article records [set=OUP] updated since 2007-04-01 [from=2007-04-01]
http://open-archive.highwire.org/handler?verb=ListRecords&metadataPrefix=oai_dc&from=2007-04-01&set=OUP

All records from a particular journal [set=<journalcode>]. The journal code parameter can be found in the Journal home page URLs and online coverage .xls or .csv file. The code for OAI-PMH use is the HighWire Code column. The example shows Bioinformatics (bioinfo).
