Automatic Content Syndication in Information Science: A Brazilian Experience in the Creation of RSS Feeds to e-journals
This paper reports the partial results of an exploratory study which intends to develop a methodology for a Web feed-based aggregation content service to electronic journals in Information Science. Ten scientific e-journals were chosen as sample to demonstrate the potential of the Web syndication technology. These e-journals are supported by the Brazilian Electronic Journal Publishing System (SEER), adapted from the Open Journal Systems (OJS), an open source software for the management of peer-review journals, developed by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP). In this context, the present study describes the concepts of aggregation and content syndication in Web environments. Moreover, it discusses the possibilities, advantages and eventual barriers to the implementation of RSS applications concerned with electronic journals in Information Science, specially the ones supported by the OJS Systems.
