One of the primary purposes of the IR is to serve an institution’s faculty members by representing the full breadth of their works.  And yet, creating a comprehensive archive is one of the hardest, most burdensome challenges for IR managers.

The newly released Scopus-to-Digital Commons harvesting API can save IR managers up to 75% of the time it typically takes to add faculty publication records into the IR.

Our easy-to-use API pulls Scopus metadata records with a single search.

Benefits of the API

  • Quickly and accurately populate your IR with trusted Scopus data
  • No technical skills required
  • Spend less time on data entry
  • Comply with open access (OA) mandates by flagging OA content
  • Take advantage of customization and content control features

How the API works

Scopus is a leading source-neutral abstract and citation database. The API interface will harvest metadata from faculty publications indexed in Scopus for easy reviewing and uploading to the IR, creating instant records that reflect your institution’s full research output.

If you are just launching a Digital Commons IR, this API means you can quickly populate it and push it live in record time. Routine harvesting of Scopus metadata ensures your Digital Commons IR is easily kept up to date.
