Is there another source of journal metadata that is free?
Hi kiwidude, thanks for the prompt answer. Well, I (perhaps naively?) thought that with the doi one could "suck up" the metadata from the article page itself, e/.g for the above doi it would be here:
http://www.informaworld.com/smpp/con...~frm=titlelink

Having said that, one site that is free as far as I know is "cite you like", which again for the above DOI returns:
http://www.citeulike.org/user/PreciousJ/article/7478980

But I am no tech-person, so perhaps this does not make sense...
