JournalsTOCS API Technical Documentation

Call: institution

To use this call, first you need to register your institution with JournalTOCs customisation from here.

This call is useful to integrate the content of journal TOCs into your institutional application. Because this call gives you access to tailored and filtered search results for your institutional journals, you need to obtain a unique institutionID from JournalTOCs to be able to use this call.

The institution call performs searches by keywords in the article title, description and author elements on the journals to which your institution subscribes. The latest articles matching the search criteria are returned.

Base URL

http://www.journaltocs.ac.uk/api/institution/

Arguments

  • institutionID (Required)
    • A predefined unique identifier assigned to your institution when you register for a customisation. For example: "HeriotWatt", "techXtra", "wlv", etc.
  • query (Required)
    • A query is a list of free text keywords.

Examples

Example Query 1

http://www.journaltocs.ac.uk/api/institution/HeriotWatt/"bayesian filtering"

<description><p class="abstract"><div class=" " lang="en"><a name="Abs1"></a><span class=" Heading"></span><div class="normal">We analyze the negative influence of the polarization capacity of corroding electrodes on the accuracy of evaluation of the corrosion rate. Due to the influence of deposits, the impedance of the electrode has an abnormally high capacity [(10<sup>4</sup> - 10<sup>5</sup>) μF/cm<sup>2</sup>]. The difficulties encountered in measuring the polarization resistance and, hence, the corrosion rate in the process of galvanostatic polarization are caused by the uncertainty of the time of complete charging of the capacity and, hence, the time of termination of measurements. We deduce the analytic dependence of the true value of corrosion rate on various polarization currents in the process of measurements and check it with the help of an experimental model of the source of direct current with galvanostatic polarization and recording the polarization voltage on the equivalent circuit of two-electrode corrosion transducer. The results obtained by using the proposed two-step method are independent of the polarization capacity and the duration of the transition process, whereas the period of measurements is much shorter than the period of complete (98%) charging of the polarization capacity and admissible for the corrosion measurements.

<title>Auditing methodology on legal compliance of enterprise information systems</title>

<description>In spite of the scepticism, that information technology (IT) compliance is useless enforcement, which does not contribute to an economic balance of the organisations, IT compliance is a mandatory responsibility of the organisations for their survival enforced by legalised rules. To review and update enterprise information systems to be in compliance with various laws is not an easy work because previous studies on information engineering or security engineering do not provide a specialised methodology for IT compliance. The most critical problem that the organisations are facing is that it is very difficult to identify what they should do for IT compliance. An auditing methodology, which identifies the problems of and provides guides on IT compliance would be the solution for the problems that organisations are facing. This paper provides an auditing methodology, which consists of an auditing target, checklist, process model, evaluation indices and reference model. The methodology proposed in this paper helps IT staffs, managements and auditors to improve the level of IT compliance and manage an auditing project effectively.</description>

<description>With Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) and other legislation enacted worldwide, effective information technology (IT) governance has become an imperative for many companies. To maintain effective supervision for keeping their organisation on track with its business strategy, top management need to understand their evolving roles in governance over IT by adopting relevant frameworks to assist the design and evaluate the performance of the company's IT systems. One commonly used framework is COBIT (control objectives for information and related technology) which provides guidelines and best practices to design and evaluate the performance of IT systems. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the general status of IT governance in Taiwan's small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and examine whether the key components necessary for achieving effective IT governance are in place.</description>
