OAI-PMH harvestable resource maps of articles

Postby MMeijer » Thu Nov 03, 2011 4:04 am

As part of a Dutch academic publishing project (see EJME - Enhanced Journals Made Easy), I made a plugin to publish a Resource Map with each article. Resource Maps are contributions to the global Linked Data Network. The article ReM currently lists the published article galleys, the authors, and the supplementary files. (This is the file 'rem.tar.gz')
To become part of the "cloud" ReMs should be harvestable. We use the OAI-PMH protocol for this, and added a new OAI Metadata Format, 'oai_ore' to the OaiMetadataFormats plugins. (This is the file 'enhpub.tar.gz')
To be useful, both plugins must be installed.

After installing, each article will have a (dynamically generated) ResourceMap which can be viewed from the Reading Tools > Indexing Metadata popup window. Since this template has no hook, I put the link into a copy of templates/rt/metadata.tpl. This link is just for human inspection.
The OAI Metadata Format plugin adds the "oai_ore" format to the OJS OAI-provider. E.g. you can now try


to get a OAI-PMH stream of ReMs.

I developed and tested this plugin on a OJS 2.3.5 unix & local windows platform

Any comments welcome!
