PaperMetadata

PaperMetadata is a gem that gets a publication's metadata by accessing the CrossRef OpenURL API.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'paper_metadata'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install paper_metadata

Usage

You can use PaperMetadata like this:

result = PaperMetadata.metadata_for('doi:10.1021/ac1014832')

The result will be a hash similar to this one:

{ :volume=>"82",
  :isssue=>"19",
  :first_page=>"8153",
  :last_page=>"8160",
  :title=>
  "Basic Modeling Approach To Optimize Elemental Imaging by Laser Ablation ICPMS",
  :authors=>"Jure Triglav, Johannes T. van Elteren, Vid S. Šelih",
  :journal=>"Anal. Chem. 2010",
