COAR > Automated Downloading of Citation Data

Catalina Oyler, Five Colleges of Ohio Digital Initiatives Coordinator, developed, as a part of an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant, a procedure for batch loading scholarly article citations (from Web of Science [etc.]/via Refworks) into a DSPACE scholarly article repository.  This allowed Oberlin College to efficiently load large numbers of faculty citations for 2010 and 2011 as a means of growing the IR.

This process modifies the batch submission process to start with metadata in the form of RefWorks citations instead of an excel spreadsheet.

There are two different processes for going from Refworks to the DRC.  The Refworks2DC process uploads the Refworks metadata without an associated bitstream.  This process can be used to populate a collection with citations and links to DOIs or have bitstreams added later.  The Refworks2DCbitsteam process uploads metadata as well as primary object bitstreams.  Each attachment includes an instruction guide as well as the files needed for the transformation.
