OAI-PMH gateway for RePEc

This gateway is sponsored by the Deutsche Zentralbibliothek für Wirtschaftswissenschaften (ZBW) - Leibniz-Informationszentrum Wirtschaft. The gateway is maintained by me, Thomas Krichel. I recommend you use the AMF metadata format to get the most information out of the OAI and RePEc.

OAI-PMH is a cumbersome protocol. If you use RePEc data on a regular basis, I strongly recommend getting in touch with me via email to krichel at openlib org or via Skype to thomaskrichel, to set up an ssh-based rsync solution. This will be much more efficient.

Another way to get to this data is to mirror it from ftp archive. It contain almost all RePEc data, well, at least those that I think are useful to others.

If you insist on using OAI-PMH, you can use It was first drafted by me and then improved by Christopher F. Baum.

Good luck, and cheers!
