Financial support for APC is usually provided by the authors' institutes or research funding bodies. Read more about our Open Access and Public Access Policy.

Data Availability for Indexing and Generation of Metadata

ResearchersLinks partner with several leading indexing and services databases which are continuously parsing contents and can access contents automatically. In order to obtain such permission, we request you to contact us for more details.

Data availability through Crossref: Being a member of the Crossref, we assign DOI numbers to each published articles. The DOI number prefix assigned to ResearchersLinks documents is “10.17582”. These metadata are deposited to the Crossref on daily bases, however, please note that due to regional time differences if DOI numbers are assigned on the same day, these become available and functional on the next day. You can access and request metadata from Crossref through CURL protocol. Shown here is an example for the 10.17582/journal.pjz/2018.


curl -L -H "Accept: application/unixref+xml" ""

Data availability through HTML access: ResearchersLinks maintains all published contents in HTML format for indexing databases. These files can generally be delivered through File Transfer Protocol (FTP). We can make you accessible to these content as well as metadata. Please contact us for more information and to discuss the possibility to setup additional parsing options.
