Announcing the PLoS Search API – build innovative applications that accelerate science

The new PLoS Search API gives developers access to rich data that can be flexibly integrated into applications for the web, desktop or mobile devices. It allows PLoS content to be queried using any of the fields in the PLoS Search engine. By opening the PLoS content and data through this API, we hope to encourage the development of tools that will improve the way PLoS users discover and interact with our (and their) content.

“We’re pleased to be able to allow developers to leverage PLoS content and data to improve their own web offerings” — Richard Cave, IT Director at PLoS, on the availability of the PLoS Search API

To give you an idea of the things that you’ll be able to do with the PLoS Search API, we created some examples using our API.  To get started, you’ll need to register for an PLoS API Key.

If you have any  questions about using the PLoS Search API,  post your questions to the PLoS API developers group.
