Understanding the usage of your publications used to be easy: if it's a book, count the sales. A magazine? Count the subscriptions. An article--count the circulation of the hosting publication. If you're a librarian, just look at how many times it was checked out. For impact, count citations. The digital universe requires new tools to measure these and the Scholarly IQ API is Scholarly's app for putting them right into your application. Scholarly IQ uses SUSHI to harvest COUNTER usage statistics.
Five APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Bots, Education, Music, Printing and Email categories. Here is a quick summary of what is new in the directory.
Google announces more Google Plus API hackathons. YouTube explains how to best upload videos through your apps. Plus: Another heavy Google Maps API user says goodbye, music developers and 23 new APIs.
