One search - all the data

One search - all the data

4 Jun 2018 - 12:15

Data is at the heart of research. Every publication is a story about data. Thus it is essential to link data in public repositories, such as databases at EMBL-EBI, with the articles that have described or cited this data. But literature-data links come in all forms and shapes, from accession numbers to URLs and DOIs. To simplify this for our users we have made important changes to Europe PMC website and Europe PMC webservices. Now all data described in a paper or related to the paper - be it supplemental files, protein structure citation or FlyBase reference can be found with a single query. Try HAS_DATA:Y search on the Europe PMC website to capture all articles with linked research data, or use datalinks API to get literature-data links programmatically. To facilitate link exchange and make your experience especially smooth we have adopted Scholix format for literature-data links in Europe PMC. You can read more about the format and our integration with Scholix in our recent blog post.
