  The Open Archives Initiative develops and promotes interoperability standards that aim to facilitate the efficient dissemination of content. The Open Archives Initiative has its roots in an effort to enhance access to e-print archives as a means of increasing the availability of scholarly communication. Continued support of this work remains a cornerstone of the Open Archives program. The fundamental technological framework and standards that are developing to support this work are, however, independent of the both the type of content offered and the economic mechanisms surrounding that content, and promise to have much broader relevance in opening up access to a range of digital materials. As a result, the Open Archives Initiative is currently an organization and an effort explicitly in transition, and is committed to exploring and enabling this new and broader range of applications. As we gain greater knowledge of the scope of applicability of the underlying technology and standards being developed, and begin to understand the structure and culture of the various adopter communities, we expect that we will have to make continued evolutionary changes to both the mission and organization of the Open Archives Initiative.

  The University of Illinois OAI-PMH Data Provider Registry.We have collected Identify, ListSets, ListMetadataFormats, and sample records from all of the OAI compliant repositories we could find from various sources, added the data to a database, indexed them, and made them searchable. We have also created several reports from the data. This system is driven entirely from database queries against our database, and not from live queries to the OAI repositories. Therefore, at any given time the data will be out-of-date by some period of time. The data in our database will be periodically refreshed from the original OAI repositories, plus new repositories will be added as they are found. For an XML report of all the repositories from which we have data, access our Friends List. This collection is also harvestable via the OAI protocol; the baseURL is
  Microsoft Academic Search is a free public search engine for academic papers and literature, developed by Microsoft Research for the purpose of algorithms research in object-level vertical search, data mining, entity linking, and data visualization. Although largely functional, the service is not intended to be a production web site and may be taken offline in the future when the research goals of the project have been met. According to a 2014 publication on arXiv, the service has not been updated since 2013 and seen a marked decline in the number of indexed documents since 2011. The fact that this decline has not been reported on earlier indicates to the authors that the service was largely ignored by academics and bibliometricians alike. The database consists of the bibliographic information (metadata) for academic papers published in journals, conference proceedings, and the citations between them. As of February 2014, it has indexed over 39.9 million publications and 19.9 million authors.

Actualizada anualmente, la base de datos MIAR reúne información clave para la identificación y la evaluación de revistas. Éstas se agrupan en grandes áreas científicas –subdivididas a su vez en campos académicos más específicos–. El sistema crea una matriz de correspondencia entre las revistas, identificadas por su ISSN, y las bases de datos, repertorios y catálogos de bibliotecas que las indizan o incluyen. Además, se indica el vínculo a las webs de los editores e instituciones responsables de los repertorios y fuentes siempre que se dispone del mismo.
MIAR es un instrumento de apoyo para quienes han de realizar labores de evaluación: ahora disponen de datos sobre la identidad y la difusión de las revistas donde se publican los trabajos objeto de evaluación.
MIAR incluye más de 28.000 publicaciones, para cada una de las cuales se analiza su presencia en bdds y repertorios multidisciplinares y como resultado se obtiene su ICDS.
