Indexing & Abstracting
ROAD has been developed with the support of the Communication and Information Sector of UNESCO, it provides free access to a subset of the ISSN Register. This subset comprises bibliographic records which describe scholarly resources in Open Access identified by an ISSN: journals, monographic series, conference proceedings and academic repositories. ROAD records are enriched by metadata about the coverage of the resources by indexing and abstracting databases, registries, and journal indicators. They are downloadable as a MARC XML dump and will be available as RDF triples in 2014.
