Dear Tim,

I have developed a SOAP client against the Lite Service based on the CPAN module "SOAP::WSDL". http://search.cpan.org/~mkutter/SOAP-WSDL-2.00.10/lib/SOAP/WSDL.pm

The main difference I see between premium and Lite is the data encapsulation. The search results returned by Lite service are in plain XML modes while the results back from premium is encapsulated in CDATA. It is very painful to parse the CDATA though I succeeded. Also there are two key metadata are missing in the new version Lite Search compared with the old WoS service (as I understand there was no Premium service before):

1, The record type is missing in Lite service. So all the records are imported as "Article". Our editors need to sort them out by hand once records are imported.  

2, Author's email addresses are missing in Lite service. So editors need to add them by hand.

Of course, there are more metadata provided in the premium service, such as physical addresses of authors, sponsors of projects, abstract, etc. However, our repository is not very interested in those. We are now fighting with WoS about the record type metadata as it actually downgraded the service level as we had before.

Best Wishes,
Jia

Hi All,

I'm currently working on fixing this in 3.3.

It appears we (Southampton) have "Premium" (which doesn't confer access to "Lite"), so I too would be interested to know what the difference is.

All the best,
Tim.
