Semantic Scholar API
Semantic Scholar provides a RESTful API for convenient linking to Semantic Scholar pages and pulling information about individual records on demand (subject to our dataset license agreement​). When publicly displaying data from this API, please incorporate the Semantic Scholar name and logo and point back to Semantic Scholar at with a utm_source=api UTM parameter.
Rate Limit
The API is freely available, but enforces a rate limit and will respond with HTTP status 429 'Too Many Requests' if the limit is exceeded (100 requests per 5 minute window per IP address). Higher rates of access are allowed to Data Partners of Semantic Scholar - interested parties should submit a request via the partnership contact form to determine if a private API key is appropriate for your request.
Browser Redirect[Paper Identifier]
You can easily link to Semantic Scholar pages without calling the API. Simply create a link with the ID you have and we will redirect the user's browser to the appropriate page.
