Cambridge Journals Online Enters API Beta Phase

Cambridge Journals Online (CJO), Cambridge University Press’ platform for its 300-plus peer-reviewed journals, released an API (application programming interface) so developers can use research data from all of the subjects CJO publishes in any software application they choose. The API is in beta phase, meaning that only citation information and abstracts are accessible to developers.

Cambridge University Press hopes participating developers will find new ways to use CJO content. On the API website, developers are encouraged to “run a live list of all articles published on CJO, or you can take a feed for a keyword or search term … the only limit is your creativity.” There will be more data for the API once the project is finished its beta phase.

“In line with Cambridge University Press’s commitment to advance learning, knowledge and research worldwide, the adoption and implementation of the Cambridge Journals API programme has the potential to open up new, beneficial uses for journal data that can be freely shared with the academic community. Cambridge Journals will continue to work on ways to offer more data via the API in future and welcomes feedback and suggestions for improvement,” says Chris Fell, digital publishing director for Cambridge Academic.
