Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) is a low-barrier mechanism for repository interoperability. Data Providers are repositories that expose structured metadata via OAI-PMH. Service Providers then make OAI-PMH service requests to harvest that metadata. OAI-PMH is developed by the Open Archives Initiative.

JVE Journals support the OAI Metadata Harvesting Protocol 2.0. Metadata for all published articles is available via the OAI-PMH interface to interested Service Providers.

Examples of OAI-PMH Requests

To retrieve information about a repository:
https://www.jvejournals.com/oai-pmh/oai2?verb=identify

To retrieve the set structure of the JVE International repository:
https://www.jvejournals.com/oai-pmh/oai2?verb=listsets

To retrieve the metadata formats available from the JVE International repository:
https://www.jvejournals.com/oai-pmh/oai2?verb=listmetadataformats

To retrieve records from the JVE International repository:
https://www.jvejournals.com/oai-pmh/oai2?verb=listrecords&metadataprefix=oai_dc

To retrieve an individual metadata record from the JVE International repository:
https://www.jvejournals.com/oai-pmh/oai2?verb=getrecord&metadataprefix=oai_dc&identifier=oai:jvejournals.com:article/VP.21255

To retrieve an abbreviated form of List Records, retrieving only headers rather than records for a specific journal:
https://www.jvejournals.com/oai-pmh/oai2?verb=listidentifiers&metadataPrefix=oai_dc&set=JVE

To retrieve an abbreviated form of List Records, retrieving only headers rather than records in a specified date range:
https://www.jvejournals.com/oai-pmh/oai2?verb=listidentifiers&metadataprefix=oai_dc&from=2019-01-01&until=2020-01-01
