The newsletter editors try to provide the toc of contents of each journal in the most uniform possible way. In order to do so, the information is not taken directly from the journal websites: instead the doi database at is used.

This database is queried by a script that requests the info in bibtex format, so the results are easy to parse and are homogeneous the ones with the others.

An example of a query for an article with doi 10.1134/S0869864315030105 is the following:

curl -LH "Accept: text/bibliography; style=bibtex"

The resulting text response is after analysed for some basic information (like authors, pages and so on), while for the keywords the original journal webpage is queried.

The process is automatised whenever possible, excluding obvious parts like the EUCASS classification that needs to be done manually.
