The DataCite REST API allows users to retrieve, query and browse DataCite DOI (Digital Object Identifier) metadata records. The API is (generally) RESTFUL and returns results in JSON, as the API follows the JSON API specification. The DataCite REST API is not intended for creating DOIs or metadata records. The API does NOT require authentication.
Other alternatives to retrieve, query and browse DataCite DOI metadata records include DataCite OAI-PMH service and the DataCite Search service. OAI-PMH is used primarily for the bulk harvesting of metadata, and DataCite Search – which uses the DataCite REST API under the hood – provides a web interface to retrieve, query and browse DataCite metadata records.
DataCite is a global non-profit organization that provides persistent identifiers (DOIs) for research data. Their goal is to help the research community locate, identify, and cite research data with confidence.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
