This week we had 4 new APIs added to our API directory including an API that lets you search 30 million scientific, technical and medical research articles; one we highlighted earlier this week that is a travel guide API; an API for sharing videos on Twitter; and an API for social measurement and analytics. Below are more details on each of these new APIs:

DeepdyveDeepdyve API: DeepDyve is the largest online rental service for scientific, technical and medical research with over 30 million articles from thousands of authoritative journals. The DeepDyve API lets developers integrate its powerful search capabilities directly into their pages.

NextstopNextstop API: Nextstop is a "community effort to build a catalog of recommendations best things to do and places to visit around the world. The Nextstop API is a REST style API that returns results in the JSON format. Currently available only as a read only API, the nextstop API lets you access all of the original recommendations contained on nextstop.com for purposes of display on your site or application. The APIs can be used to search for relevant content in the nextstop database, or to retreive all available information about a particular place or guide."

VidlyVidly API: Vidly provides a place for anyone to share videos on Twitter. There are several ways to interact with Vidly's API: "you can share videos on Twitter from your website via webcam, direct upload your iPhone with a client library, or for anything else."

ViralheatViralheat API: Viralheat is "a social measurement platform designed to be simple to use.
