Available APIs

  • Article Match Retrieval
    The Links Article Match Retrieval Service (AMR) allows for a real-time lookup of bibliographic metadata such as DOI, author, source title, etc., against the Web of Science Core Collection. This enables building article level links to the Web of Science from external systems and retrieving Times Cited counts from the Web of Science.
    Technical documentation

The InCites API provides article level metrics to support integration in Research Management Systems or Current Research Information Systems (CRIS).
