2012 SSP 34th Annual Meeting “Social, Mobile, Agile, Global: Are You Ready?”
Concurrent 1C: Discovery Beyond Google
Search engines play a vital role in bringing readers to scholarly articles. While publishers have put great effort into search engine optimization, a new breed of scholarly discovery services is on the rise. These new tools rely on high quality metadata and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). This session will present practical information for best practices in creating metadata and APIs. Publishers will offer lessons learned in creating resources for developers, and developers will discuss how publishers can best meet their needs.
