This application adds a "find similar journals" link to the journal A-Z list as well as a peer reviewed indicator for journals which are peer reviewed. When the Find Similar Journals link is clicked, a new web page opens showing journal titles similar to the one that is being displayed. The code gathers related ISSN from the xISSN web service and then uses these to gather relevant subject headings from the Worldcat Search API. It then uses these subject headings to search for and display other titles that the library has that have similar subjects, allowing users to "Find Similar Journals" to the ones they are browsing.
The OCLC Developer Network supports the use of OCLC Web Services—a set of tools and APIs that expose data and services for WorldCat and our member libraries and partner institutions or companies. learn more »
