An API (application programming interface) is an online tool to access information or to download raw data. Many databases and publishers make APIs available for users to extract data for scholarly purposes. This guide lists some of the resources available at Tufts that provide API access, either on a full-text basis or for limited retrieval of information.

Programming skills are required to use many of these APIs.

For more information on using APIs for research see APIs for Scholarly Resources.

For assistance with using these APIs please contact Micah Saxton at
