[EP-tech] Thomson Reuters API/PHP



Hi,
No knowledge of SOAP+PHP - but if you want to do this in Perl - there's a module that will help - SOAP::Lite

If you take a look at this: http://files.eprints.org/778/ it uses that module to harvest data from the EThOS SOAP endpoint (it was written against EPrints 3.1.1 - but still works).

I could possibly provide some more pointers if necessary.
Cheers,
John

Hi all,

Don't know if this is the ideal forum for this but I've been banging my head against a brick wall for the last week trying to get this working. We have access to the full Thomson Reuters WoS Web Services API through our InCites subscription and I'm trying to build a PHP script to dive in and grab citation counts for records based on DOI. I'm struggling a bit, however; the API uses SOAP which I'm really not familiar with and trying to use the (somewhat confusing) TR documentation to hack things together, extrapolating from online examples, is leading to multiple dead ends with tech support from TR being unable to provide any language specific assistance. Has anyone successfully integrated this through PHP or have any experience using SOAP that could give me a few pointers?

Talk soon!
