CiNii Books RDF for Authors Format Specification

When you access to the following URI, you can obtain the data with RDF/XML format.
http://ci.nii.ac.jp/author/<AuthorID>.rdf (ex: http://ci.nii.ac.jp/author/DA15839119.rdf)

Content Negotiation is also acceptable. Even if RDF URI is not be specified, RDF will respond by recognition from HTTP header. At the Author Details Page in CiNii Books (ex: http://ci.nii.ac.jp/author/DA15839119) specification of "application/rdf+xml" in Accept field of HTTP request header has much priority than any other specifications, it will induce automatically to RDF URI.

"Access-Control-Allow-Origin*" is required on http header for response, and it is available to use asynchronous communication between cross domains.
