We've released a very easy linking scheme for Computing Reviews that allows you to link to a review (if one exists) using the item's ISBN or DOI number. You can set this up for a variety of applications or just to provide easy links from your site. Let us know how you use it!
To link to the review of a book, simply construct a URL using the ISBN of the book, like this:
To link to the review of a journal or conference proceedings article, construct the URL using the DOI of the article, like this:
If we have a review of the item, our system will find it based on the ISBN or DOI and redirect you to the review page. Subscribers with IP-based access will have the review page display automatically; otherwise, you'll need to use your login details to access the review.
If we don't have a review of the book or journal article, you'll be redirected to the Computing Reviews homepage.
That's it. We hope that database providers will be able to take advantage of this simple linking scheme to provide additional links within their content to our reviews.
