APIs (Application Programming Interface) are tools that allow for computer-to-computer interaction. Elsevier Research Products APIs help researchers integrate Elsevier data into their work. Elsevier has APIs available for many of our Products including ScienceDirect, Scopus, Engineering Village, and Embase.
IEEE Xplore® APIs provide access to metadata for more than 6 million documents available in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, including IEEE Journals, Conferences, Books, Courses, and Standards.
IEEE Xplore Metadata APIs can be used for: Content indexing / discovery services and Text and data mining (TDM).
Not a true API, but allows computational analysis and selection of JSTOR’s scholarly journal and primary resource collections. It includes tools for faceted searching and filtering, text analysis, topic modelling, data extraction, and visualization.
The New York Times API allows you to programmatically access New York Times data for use in your own applications (as long as it's for non-commercial purposes). NYT currently has ten public APIs: Archive, Article Search, Books, Community, Geographic, Most Popular, Semantic, Times Newswire, TimesTags, and Top Stories.
The OECD has application programming interfaces (APIs) that provide access to datasets in the catalogue of OECD databases. The APIs allow you to query the data in several ways, using parameters to specify your request so that you can create innovative software applications which use OECD datasets.
The APIs are available in JSON and XML formats.
The digital collections available through LOC.gov may also be queried, or searched, using the Library of Congress Application Programming Interface (API). This allows users to download collection content files and structured data (JSON/YAML) about collections. The API allows users to search all records indexed in LOC.gov.
ORCID offers a public API that allows organizations that are not ORCID members to connect their systems and applications to the ORCID registry with machine-to-machine communications. The API is a restful API and supports both XML and JSON.
