HTML entities in journal titles


It seems some titles encode ampersands as HTML entity &. I wonder if all special characters are converted to HTML entities at registration, or are they registered as submitted? Any suggestions on how to clean the titles are much appreciated!


The titles and metadata would be registered as they are submitted to us and so if the ampersand is encoded then that will be registered as such but any tool using that title might then convert that title itself.

If you have examples of titles that you would like us to take a look at any further questions regarding the cleaning up of titles then please do add them here.

Thank you,
