The Open Archives Initiative has always maintained a distinction between data providers and service providers. This works at a functional level; some current projects are showing that it is less significant at an operational level. The Open Citation project harvests reference data from full-text eprint archives for reference linking, citation analysis and citation-ranked search. These are regarded as service provider functions where the end-user interacts directly with the services. The aim is to make these data available for export back to the full-text archives and to other service providers. Thus OpCit becomes a data provider too. The current Open Archives Protocol for Metadata Harvesting says nothing about full-text data harvesting for services such as these, nor about the export of processed data. This short paper outlines two proposals for progress on these issues.
