FAQ - Questions about links with external systems
Of the information provided by CiNii, bibliographic information held by NII-ELS can be imported by BibTex and Endnote. Data other than NII-ELS is not compatible with bibliographic management software.
Yes. CiNii is able to be linked to other websites and systems using OpenURL as follows:
(1) Institutions with fixed-price contracts are able to set links between their OPAC, systems such as link resolvers (a system that links article information in a database to library OPACs or full text resources) and CiNii Articles by using OpenURL.
CiNii is compatible with OpenURL 1.0 and 0.1.
*Note: Only the administrators of the institutions with fixed-price contracts are able to set such links.
For details, see: About the OpenURL Sending Function.
(2) Describing a link in the OpenURL format enables links between each record on CiNii to link resolvers, etc.
For details, see: About the OpenURL Receiving Function for CiNii Articles, About the OpenURL Receiving Function for CiNii Books.
Users can set links between CiNii and their OPACs by using ISSN.
*This function is for only for institutions with fixed-price contracts. Administrators can set it from the settings page for institutions.
For more details, see "About the OpenURL Sending Function".
Libraries connected to the online cataloging system (NACSIS-CAT) are able to set and display a link to their OPACs on CiNii Books by adding the data to information on connected library of NACSIS-CAT database, if their OPAC can receive NCID as a parameter.
