The Open Harvester Systems is a free metadata indexing system developed by the Public Knowledge Project through its federally funded efforts to expand and improve access to research. OHS allows you to create a searchable index of the metadata from Open Archives Initiative (OAI)-compliant repositories such as sites using Open Journal Systems (OJS) or Open Conference Systems (OCS).
