PoS implements the OAI-PMH. Here are some example on how to employ the engine. We are going to use the conference IHEP-LHC in the following examples.

The OAI base URL is:

Each record describes a proceeding (i.e. a single contribution to a conference):

The <dc:identifier> element in the <metadata> section is in this form:

Stable URLs

To obtain a stable URL of a record, one can prepend the following string to the contribution ID:
This will point to a landing page for the contribution.


There are two ortogonal "sets" by which each record is classified:

The conference set, which represents all proceedings of a conference, such as:
The above will return all the accepted contributions of that conference.

The group set, which represent keywords, such as:
The above will return all the contributions to all conferences that have the "group:6" keyword, which is for "High Energy Physics" (please note that listing contributions by "group" may generate a lot of data).
The keywords are assigned to the conference, so each contribution of the same conference will share the same keywords.
