API Connector to the Ghent University Academic Bibliography

Ghent University Academic Bibliography contains all the scientific publications by UGent Researchers. The API is public and pretty straight forward.

To use the API in Python this wrapper is available. Instead of returning plain JSON, it returns named tuples and provides methods for querying the API.


Should you consult the original API info, notice two differences

  • Leading underscores on all fields are removed (e.g. _id becomes id)
  • All hyphens are replaces with underscores (e.g. chicago-author-date becomes chicago_author_date)
