Open API Challenge: Scientific Program Data
AGU has long been a proponent and leader in open data and open science, not only in our own publications and meetings, but also within the broader research community. (You can read more about AGU’s ongoing efforts in this From the Prow post.)
AGU is taking that commitment to the next level by introducing an Application Program Interface (API) that will open the door for scientists, developers, and others to create innovative applications that advance science and our mission.
The AGU Open API Challenge invited the development of a web-based tool that adds value to an API containing data from the Fall Meeting Scientific Program with the goal of advancing the scientific enterprise. Areas of potential value include, but are not limited to: serendipitous discovery of relevant research, discovery of new collaboration opportunities, and identification of emerging areas of science.
