Single purpose API
Scientific journals are providing greater access to published research by releasing new APIs. Cambridge Journals Online API and Public Library of Science Article Level Metrics API have both been released in the past several weeks. Meanwhile, the European Commission has just completed a public consultation on open access to research data ahead of a new wave of policy reform and their next big research funding round.
Cambridge Journals Online started a beta version of its first API that grants access to research data contained in its vast database. Dropbox made changes to its API that may be problematic for those using sync features. Plus: KidoZen Releases Enterprise Systems APIs, Embed and Annotate Maps with OS OpenSpace API, and 15 new APIs.
