I am currently doing a bit of desk research about the use of different kinds of contributors in deposited metadata. Specifically, I am trying to find out how the frequently organizations are added as contributors.
I have been trying to find how often they occur in the wild, and some of the DOIs I thought of do not use this type of contributor, regrettably. Now my question is, does anybody have an idea on how to find these?
I am fairly familiar with the API and the docs, but I couldn’t find any information on filtering for this specifically. I thought of downloading the data dump and sorting through that info, but I’m trying to prevent using that amount of energy/bandwidth.
Q: Do you know whether the underlying XML for your WHO query are organization tags instead of regulator contributor? I can’t discern based on the JSON:
My expectation would be that it isn’t deposited as an organization because those cannot contain the affiliation tag.
I also checked out the torrent of the data dump and downloaded 1 of the split files (saving bandwidth ). I only get the JSON so can’t search on the XML tags, and I have not seen an example of the organization tag so am unsure how to find one!
I am interested in verifying whether anybody uses this tag at all and if so, identifying examples. Until yet, I have not found any examples based on the JSON, so the above question seems relevant.
EDIT: Maybe it is recognizable by the fact it has only name instead of given and `family?
