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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
