S75: Working with the Dimensions and Altmetric APIs to search, visualize, and integrate research information across library systems

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this seminar, participants will learn to use the Dimensions API to search and export connected and standardized research information for publications, patents, grants, clinical trials, and policy documents so that it can be analyzed for decision-making and reused across a variety of library and university systems. Participants will also use the Dimensions and Altmetric APIs to integrate citation and altmetrics data into reports and external systems.

Participants will use the computer programming language Python and Jupyter, an app for in-browser data retrieval, analysis, and note taking, to create reproducible API search queries that satisfy a variety of use cases including:

  • Developing custom metrics for annual reporting
  • Visualizing collaborations, awarded grants, and co-occurring citations and online mentions
  • Gathering institutional publication metadata and metrics for porting to a university website

The seminar is intended for those with at least basic computer programming experience.
