Technical components and background (in progress)
Technical Specifications: JSON
JSON is useful to integrate the metadata in your own website, especially if you have a publication list, e.g. from a department which you want to integrate. To use JSON just make your search in DORA, copy the URL and add the characters json_cit_a/ right after the "search". For example, for all publications related to the Empa department 201 High Performance Ceramics: https://www.dora.lib4ri.ch/empa/islandora/search/json_cit_a/*%3A*?f=mods_name_personal_affiliation_ms%3A%22201%20High%20Performance%20Ceramics%22
You will receive the citations in a specific citation style. If you want to receive the list in another citation style, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the option below which provides you only the PIDs.
Using JSON for the citation of a single publication
JSON can also be used for showing the citation of a single publication. Please use the persistent URL of the publication:
and slightly change the link by replacing object/ with /search/json_cit_pids: https://www.dora.lib4ri.ch/eawag/islandora/search/json_cit_pids/eawag:17779
It's also possible to get the citation of two or more different publications simply by adding more pids, divided by a |: https://www.dora.lib4ri.ch/eawag/islandora/search/json_cit_pids/eawag:17779|eawag:15477
Getting only the PIDs in JSON (without citation)
One can receive only the PIDs from the publication list as well. This can be useful, if you want to create your own citation style with another tool before implementing it in your homepage.
After the word search in the URL add /json and you will receive the results as a json-encoded list (listed are the PIDs): https://www.dora.lib4ri.ch/empa/islandora/search/json/*%3A*?f=mods_name_personal_affiliation_ms%3A%22201%20High%20Performance%20Ceramics%22
You have also the option to limit the amount of publications in your result. Just put at the end &limit= and then add the total amount of publication you would like to receive, e.g. for 20 publications: https://www.dora.lib4ri.ch/empa/islandora/search/json_cit/*%3A*?f=mods_name_personal_affiliation_ms%3A%22201%20High%20Performance%20Ceramics%22&limit=20
