In case it's at all helpful, that means you can access the site via the wordpress-api:
...which shows you can do things like:

(I would guess it renders the HTML to flat text with no regard for authorship and reference sections.) The issue is a WordPress category, the date is the WordPress post date (I think), and Title is the WordPress title. Author is a field we added to WordPress, and it is just a text field (authors are undistinguished in the field). Abstract is the WordPress summary. I think the RSS feed from the Journal might be a good place to get much of the information, although in some cases (like Author), further processing would be required. We also submit metadata to DOAJ (https://doaj.org/toc/1940-5758), the basis of which comes from a custom plugin; see, for example, http://journal.code4lib.org/issues/issue44/feed/doaj. (The coordinating editor downloads that file, manually checks/corrects XML errors, and uploads it too DOAJ.)
