Welcome to the Springer Nature API portal

SARS-CoV-2 is a new virus responsible for an outbreak of respiratory illness known as COVID-19, which has spread to several countries around the world. As a leading research publisher, Springer Nature is committed to supporting the global response to emerging outbreaks by enabling fast and direct access to the latest available research, evidence, and data. See https://www.springernature.com/gp/researchers/campaigns/coronavirus for full details. For API purposes, we have made additional content free via the OpenAccess API available here at https://dev.springernature.com/.

SN SciGraph is Springer Nature’s Linked Open Data offering which aggregates data sources from Springer Nature and key partners from the scholarly domain. The Linked Open Data platform collates information from across the research landscape, for example funders, research projects, conferences, affiliations and publications.

We released data (see http://www.springernature.com/scigraph) for all Springer Nature articles, along with books and chapters in various formats (JSONLD, NTriples, Turtle and RDF/XML) that can be also re-used for TDM purposes.
