Q

How to represent DOI content in RDF Turtle format?

A

RDF Turtle is also called Terse RDF Triple Language. It allows RDF graphs to be completely written in a compact and natural text form, with abbreviations for common usage patterns and datatypes.

You can use the DOI Content Negotiation service provided by doi.org to represent the content of a given DOI in RDF Turtle format.

The RDF Turtle format is triggered by the "text/turtle" MIME type as shown this HTTP request syntax:

GET https://doi.org/{doi} HTTP/1.1
Accept: text/turtle

Here is an example of how to use the DOI Content Negotiation service to get the RDF Turtle format of a given DOI:

fyicenter$ curl -H "Accept: text/turtle" \
  'https://doi.org/10.1126/science.169.3946.635'

<html><head><title>Handle Redirect</title></head>
<body>
<a href="https://api.crossref.org/v1/works/10.1126%2Fscience.169.3946.635/transform">
https://api.crossref.org/v1/works/10.1126%2Fscience.169.3946.635/transform</a>
</body></html>

Okay, doi.org is not serving this Content Negotiation request directly. It is redirecting you to api.crossref.org to get the response.

You can add the -L option to let "curl" follow the redirected location. api.crossref.org will return you the DOI content in RDF Turtle format.

fyicenter$ curl -LH "Accept: text/turtle" \
  'https://doi.org/10.1126/science.169.3946.635'
