  1. Can you provide updates to users when the api's change?

    After the 500 errors last week, my script is no longer returning results. It seems the api changed from right under me. I wish I had been notified. I paid for support, but they has been of little help. Can you communicate changes to the API?

      • Academic search results

        It seems that for some searches on Microsoft academic API (and Microsoft's own web portal), the top result (in terms of relevance and citations count) is absent.
        For example, search for "topological insulators". The top result, correctly given by Google scholar, is the most cited review article in the field, from 2010 (7454 citations), titled Colloquium: topological insulators​. ​ ​
        ​In Microsoft's academic however, there is no mention of this seminal article no matter if you order results by relevance or by citations.
        How can that be?

          • Searching publications should take word sequence into consideration

            I am interested in finding papers that quote exactly the text "Ecopath with Ecosim", not papers that contain the words 'Ecosim' and 'with' and 'Ecosim' because that may return irrelevant publications.

            IE - specific titles.

            • API - Enable fuzzy Text searching

              In the current 'Evaluate'- Academic Search API', you could do exact search on title, author etc.. but there is no ability to perform fuzzy search with records returned in order of relevance
