Metadata and full-text XML harvesting.

Interested parties aiming to access the metadata and full-text XML files of the articles published in USEFUL online journal and the DSpace at are invited to use our OAI-PMH interface.

The OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) is a low-barrier mechanism for repository interoperability used to harvest (or collect) the metadata descriptions and in our case also the full-text articles.

The web portal fully supports the OAI Metadata Harvesting Protocol 2.0. Metadata for all published articles is available in the Dublin Core format (oai-dc).
