Purpose

The sole purpose of this website is to be useful for people learning string theory.

Moderation

No moderation of content should be necessary. However, offensive comments will be removed. For example "This review of string theory doesn't mention the important topic of conformal field theory" is preferable to "This review is rubbish".

Metadata harvesting

OAI-PMH interface http://arxiv.org/help/arxiv_identifier_for_services

[1]

http://arxiv.org/help/oa

http://arxiv.org/oai2/ is baseURL

http://citebase.eprints.org/cgi-bin/oai2 is the baseURL OAI2 interface for citebase data

http://www.citebase.org/oai?verb=GetRecord&identifier=oai:arXiv.org:hep-th/9901001&metadataPrefix=oai_dc

A request needs a very and record identifier, e.g. http://arxiv.org/oai2?verb=GetRecord&identifier=oai:arXiv.org:hep-th/9901001&metadataPrefix=oai_dc

It would be good to get a utility to harvest paper metadata (see http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/openarchivesprotocol.html )

Make an HTTP request to the repository for oai:arXiv.org:cs/0112017, which responds in XML.
