Resolved. The short answer is "Yes" and a longer answer follows.
The OJS supports a REST-ful API. Given the root URL of an OJS system and an authorization token, I have written a set of Bash scripts which caches OJS issue metadata and optionally outputs rudimentary bibliographics in the form of a TSV stream. I have packaged this into a GitHub repository --> https://github.com/ericleasemorgan/ojs-toolbox Using the Toolbox, it is easy for me to create, for example, a simple bibliography of all LITA ITAL articles published since forever. There are at least 670 of them.
Just closing a loop.
