rspringer

UPDATE as of 2014-08-20

This package will undergo no further development.

THE SPRINGER API IS A MESS AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL. E.G., YOU CAN'T GET MORE THAN 20 OR SO RECORDS BACK IN AN API CALL, AND THE JSON RETURNED RESPONSE IS DIFFERENT FROM XML (IT DOESN'T INCLUDE THE ABSTRACT FOR EXAMPLE). WILL POSSIBLY WORK ON THIS AGAIN WHEN THEIR API IS IMPROVED... BAD API'S MAKE ME SAD --> :(

rspringer provides programmatic access to the Springer API via R as part of the ropensci suite (see http://ropensci.org for more information).

Usage

  1. First register API keys http://dev.springer.com/ You should receive a set of 3 keys.

  2. Add keys to your .rprofile for automatic loading.
