Feed specificationsYour feeds should use RSS 1.0 and contain Dublin Core and PRISM fields describing each article. See the PRISM standard here (currently a draft). The following fields are supported.
- *dc:creator (one element per author)
- *dc:date (the publication year, the publication date, or the string 'forthcoming')
- description (an abstract)
- *prism:publicationName (the journal name; can be either in the 'item' or the 'channel' element)
- prism:volume (in 'item' or 'channel')
- prism:number (in 'item' or 'channel')
- prism:doi (a Digital Object Identifier)
prism: = PRISM prefix
* indicates a required field
You should prepare one feed per journal, and each feed should provide the data for at least the last issue of the journal. To add older items to the index, upload them using the batch import tool. Alternatively, you can prepare a (potentially very big) RSS+PRISM xml file that we will load once. Contact us to arrange this.
Support for on-page metadataIf you already have an RSS feed but no PRISM tags, an alternative option is to add appropriate metadata to the pages linked to from your feed. Our feed monitor will visit the pages and extract the metadata. Metadata for publication dates, volumes, issues, and journal titles should be included. We support the same metadata tags used by Highwire Press and Google Scholar (e.g. "citation_title"). See the Google Scholar publisher documentation for details.
