Most of scientific paper sources provide some basic metadata about the paper (authors, publish date, DOI, etc) and sometimes the abstract and a link to the PDF of the paper. However, converting PDF to some structured data format like XML is a very tedious method,error prone and not scalable. After some research, I found some sources like CORE (https://core.ac.uk/services#dataset), Elsevier (https://dev.elsevier.com/sc_apis.html) and Springer (https://dev.springernature.com/) which provide the full text of the paper in XML or HTML format which is very usefull for data mining processes.

Are there any other scholarly sources which provide the full text of the papers in a format like XML or HTML ?


Three datasets come to my mind.


I found a fourth one, called unarXive. It is based on more than a million arXiv pre-prints, it is freely available, and contains rich metadata.
