Announcing the New PLoS Search API

Open access publisher Public Library of Science (PLoS) has announced that the new PLoS Search API (Application Programming Interface) allows anyone to build their own applications for the web, desktop, or mobile devices using PLoS content. By opening up its content and data through this API, PLoS hopes to encourage the development of more tools that will improve the way PLoS users discover and interact with its content, as well as their own.

The new Search API gives developers access to rich data that can be flexibly integrated into applications and websites. It allows PLoS content to be queried using any of the fields in the PLoS Search Engine.

There are a number of different ways developers could use the Search API. To get users’ creative juices flowing, here are some examples of widgets PLoS has built:

To get started, developers need to obtain a key (and all comers will receive one). PLoS looks forward to seeing your new apps, and says to please watch out for an exciting competition announcement in the near future.
