Using the REST API to find books published by DOI prefix

Submitted by: Michael McNulty Sep 25 11:10

Hi Crossref Support,

Please can I get a list of book titles the same as we get for Journals from: https://0-www-crossref-org.lib.rivier.edu/titleList/

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Many thanks,

Mike

Hello Mike,

Many thanks for your email.

We don’t currently have a .csv file just for books I am afraid, was it any particular book/prefix information you were looking for as we might be able to get via the API.

If it the whole list of books then I think that will be difficult but a more specific set of results might be possible.

Best regards,

Hi Mike,

Many thanks for your reply.

An API query like this: http://0-api.crossref.org.lib.rivier.edu/prefixes/10.1081/works?filter=type:book&select=title,DOI would return the book titles against the prefix 10.1081, replacing this with other prefixes would return lists for those. You can also choose for other parts of the metadata to be displayed as well. I would recommend adding a JSON viewer to your browser so it shows easier.

If there are any other tweaks you would like done to the query then please do let me know.

More information on the REST API is here: https://api.crossref.org

I hope this helps and if you have any further question or queries on this then please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Many thanks,
