Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Data Dryad DataOne API. The API gives developers programmatic access to Dryads repository of scientific publications. This is just one step of Dryads goal of developing a joint data archiving policy (JDAP), allowing third parties, research institutions, and scientific publications to be shared. Their goal, at least right now, is to broaden the access of scientific data for all. To learn more about the Dryad API visit the Dryad site as well as the Dryad API blog post.
DataDryad.org constitutes a general purpose repository of the data underlying scientific publications. DataDryad’s entire repository is discoverable through the Dryad DataONE API. The scientific and medical data of which the database is composed includes tables, spreadsheets, flatfiles, and more from peer-reviewed published papers.
