Metadata Users

The collective power of members’ metadata is available for use in a variety of tools and APIs that allow anybody to search and reuse our metadata in sophisticated ways.


Lots of people need to incorporate scholarly metadata into their software and services. For example:
  • Manuscript tracking systems
  • Hosting platforms
  • Bibliographic management software
  • Library systems
  • Author profiling tools
  • Specialist subject databases
  • Scholarly sharing networks
  • Metrics and analytics services
  • Collaborative authoring and reading tools

The resulting dissemination of metadata enhances content discoverability. The widespread use of our APIs helps to ensure that the entire community can create robust, persistent and accurate citations of our members’ content, to the benefit of publishers, readers and the organizations that use our metadata delivery services.
