I'm attempting to characterise a corpus of journal articles by their subject area and categories. I can do this for individual journals using e.g. The SCImago Journal & Country Rank (https://www.scimagojr.com), but I'd like to retrieve the data in bulk. Does anyone know whether this data exists, or whether it's available via an API?

Not an API, but still machine-readable: Scopus provides an Excel file comprising the database's coverage, including each journal's disciplines and subject areas. See this page and click on "Download the Source title list".

(Elsevier provides an API, too, so it is possible that you might obtain the same information through that venue.)
