Help Topic: Open URL resolver

This feature allows Account Administrators to provide the URL of their local OpenURL resolver.

This will help your users follow up citations to articles you hold in your collection. When a user clicks on the 'Open URL query data' link in a Cambridge full-text HTML article, they will see both a search string that complies with the OpenURL standard and a link to your resolver. This makes it very easy for them simply to copy and paste the search string directly into your resolver.

To set this up, you need to be registered as your organisation's Account Administrator and have logged in. You will then see a 'My Cambridge Journals Online' panel at the top left-hand side of every page throughout the site. Click on the 'Account Adminstrator Links' menu and then on 'Open URL Resolver'. This will take you to a new page. If you have previously provided a URL it will be displayed as the 'Current URL resolver'. To change it, or to provide the information for the first time, enter the URL into the 'New URL resolver' box, then click 'Update'.

COinS and Zotero

COinS (Context Objects in Spans) is a way of embedding OpenURL references in HTML. COinS bibliographic metadata is now embedded in the header and references of all Cambridge Journals Online articles. The metadata is invisible to readers but can be found and downloaded by the relevant processing software to create OpenURL links for library users.

Zotero is a Firefox extension which helps users collect and manage citations. It senses COinS metadata and downloads it with one click. If you have Zotero installed you will seen an 'article' icon in the address bar when you are looking at an abstract, or a 'folder' icon when viewing a table of contents. By clicking the icon you can download the article citation or select individual articles from the table of contents.
