If I am not mistaken, I think a major immediate aim that you have is to<br>make your journal article metadata Zotero-extractable from your HTML<br>pages. In this case you might want to check out the COinS work<br><<a href="http://ocoins.info/">
http://ocoins.info/</a>>, by some of the same people who did unAPI. If I<br>am not mistaken Zotero eats COinS. The COinS stuff also integrates<br>nicely with browser plug-ins to point to OpenURL Resolvers.<br><br></blockquote>
</div>the problem with coins is, that a URL may just be too short for all the metadata - in particular if the abstract is part of it (see <a href="http://support.microsoft.com/kb/208427">http://support.microsoft.com/kb/208427
</a> ); and OpenURL resolvers are a non-issue in the case where you're already surfing the fulltext of an article.<br>i do think unAPI is a good fit, in particular because it can also be used for non-xml formats like json; but as Ed pointed out, adding a link element to point to the oai pmh baseUrl would be a quick win.
