The Institute of Physics has recently implemented the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) technical framework for its Electronic Journals service.

This means that OAI compliant tools will be able to harvest metadata records of the Institute of Physics' journals in Dublin Core format. Once someone has obtained these records, more becomes possible; bibliographies can be compiled, or abstracts added to local library systems.

More information on the standard can be found at the OAI website, or view the Physics Institute anouncement.
