Muse® LinkResolver


Muse LinkResolver is our resource linking application that uses the OpenURL protocol to provide seamless access to electronic full-text content across vendor platforms for a provided citation. It uses the publisher knowledge base from Muse Central Index for finding the appropriate linking options.

The application can be used independently, serving any application generating OpenURL requests, or part of the Muse Platform, integrated with the Muse Search Application interface.
From technical point of view, the Muse LinkResolver is a web service that can be accessed through HTTP requests and returns relevant linking information about an article, book, journal, etc., as well as other relevant Internet resources.

An exploratory workflow is depicted below with the following components:

  1. The source system which is a Muse Search Application where the end-user has performed a search on the abstract database Scopus, finds an article and wants to read its content. The end-user clicks on the Muse LinkResolver link to see the available linking options.
  2. The Muse LinkResolver Application which is displaying the linking options about the citation details it received in OpenURL format.
  3. The publisher platform hosting the article full-text.
