What if you funded the research? You'd want to know the impact. Altmetric tracks "article level mentions". These metrics are defined by the Public Library of Science (PLOS) as measuring usage, citations, social bookmarking and activity, media coverage (including blogs), ratings and discussion activity. The Altmetric API provides access to its metrics that are derived from its database of over 300,000 articles and over 8,000 journals.
The Earthquake Data Portal API provides event information in both SOAP and REST-style services. For SOAP, the information is provided in QuakeML format. For REST, information is in either QuakeML or JSON formats. Users can do Event Searches, review Latest Events and look at Event Details.

The API will identify the data providers within the Seismolink network.
