SiQ supports API for data provision

Scholarly iQ (Helotes, TX) are delighted to announce support for granular data feed updates through a customized REST API. Publishers are now able to send metadata updates for COUNTER usage reporting and analytics immediately as changes occur in their systems. Granular updates provide near real-time synchronization of publisher metadata producing more accurate COUNTER usage reports and reducing reprocessing due to file transfer errors.

The service, which will best support publishers able to supply robust, scrubbed data with an established API service, will simplify the integration and processing of data. SiQ will, of course, continue to support other data transfer services where data requirements are more complex and SiQ’s expertise in data scrubbing and custom transformation, along with SSIS import packages, may be required.

In addition, the SiQ API supports the ability to extract usage data and graphs/widgets for integrating with publishers own products and platforms. Existing uses include article level metrics embedding article level statistics and graphs within their digital library. The service is fully customizable with the ability to integrate any available custom dimensions and metrics

To discuss the advantages and suitability of these various approaches for your data requirements please contact to arrange a meeting with the SiQ team.
