In 2014, the University of Florida (UF) Libraries began talking with Elsevier about expanding access to UF-authored articles published in Elsevier journals within the university’s institutional repository (IR @ UF). The discussions led to plans for a pilot project to automatically feed ScienceDirect data and links to the university repository through application programming interfaces (APIs) that are freely available to libraries. The APIs include:

  • A search API to retrieve metadata including abstracts for all articles authored by researchers affiliated with the institution
  • An entitlements API to check whether the user has access to the full text on the ScienceDirect Platform 
  • A full-text API to display and embed articles from ScienceDirect 

The project addresses several university needs: 

  • showcasing its body of work
  • providing a better user experience for researchers who use its repository
  • facilitating compliance with US policies on public access to federally funded research

The project will also help Elsevier understand the metadata required by institutional repositories via the ScienceDirect APIs.

The demonstration images for how the articles will be presented are:
