Microsoft Cognitive Services Academic Knowledge API - Developers

The Microsoft Cognitive Services Academic Knowledge API returns information from the Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG) which is an entity graph that models academic publications. This API offers 3 main features: interpreting a user query string, evaluating and returning Academic Knowledge entity results, and calculating a histogram of the distribution of several attributes contained in the response (such as citation distribution per year for a given author). Currently, a free plan that limits calls to 10,000 transactions per month is available. The Academic Knowledge API is REST based, returns information in JSON format, and uses API Keys for authentication.
