English abstract

This paper describes the provision of a Web Services interface that will extend the possibility of machine-to-machine access to the zetoc current awareness service, within the JISC Information Environment and eScience applications. This bespoke interface includes open standard XML metadata for searches and responses where possible. Elements from the OpenURL XML metadata formats for journals and books are used to transmit the bibliographic citation information that is an integral part of a zetoc record for a journal article or conference paper.
