I am thinking of an #OpenScience project & could use some help.
There is a database with information that is important for science, which has a well-documented REST API.
How do you make a hashtag out of that? #rESTaPI?
An important data element is often missing. So I would like to make a 2nd server that serves the same API & adds this element if it is missing.
What is good software to do this? Has anyone here done something similar & would be happy to help (funded)?
Boots welcome. 🤗
@meisam Thank, you very much.
Sounds like this does what I was thinking off. Great. And if not, having the right technical term opens internet doors.
🎉 🎈 🥂 👯♀️ 🙂 Thanks.
@meisam Got lucky you just returned from your hiatus. 😎
@VictorVenema I’m happy that I can help. 😊
#OpenAccess is naturally ideal, but being allowed to collect, analyse & publish their abstracts would already help a lot. #OpenAbstracts
We would be happy to scrape the abstracts from the web. Is there a group with good lawyers in the Open Community willing to stand up to the publisher & publish the abstracts? #PleaseBoost
Some claim abstracts are part of the EU Text & Data Mining exception for research. But the I4OA claims this is not allowed. https://i4oa.org
