EDP Sciences now offers a OAI-PMH service, a tool aimed at helping the development of journals that are hosted on its web platform.

The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) provides an application-independent interoperability framework for digital repositories based on metadata harvesting.

The EDP Sciences OAI-PMH service provides access to metadata of all articles published on EDP Sciences’ web platform, Vision4Press, including title, authors, abstract …

EDP Sciences supports OAI-PMH version 2.0. Metadata is available for all articles in Dublin Core format.

EDP Sciences helps scientific communities for the development of Open Access journals. Part of its catalogue of journals is already in total (gold) or partial (green) Open Access, and EDP Sciences was rated "green publisher" by the SHERPA/RoMEO site.
