  1. Support querying by DOI

    Right now, since DOIs only exist in the extended metadata, it is impossible to query the Academic Knowledge API by DOI - to do things like obtain paper citation counts, it is necessary to first obtain the Microsoft Academic paper ID.

    I would like to be able to query by DOI, to make it easier to integrate Academic Knowledge into systems that track papers generally. For a use case, I am using Academic to drive the citation counts in my publication list at https://md.ekstrandom.net/pubs/, and would like to have my query code automatically pick up papers by DOI as…

      • affiliation type and address

        can you add more attributes for affiliation, such as type (university, corporation, non-profit, hospital, government, ...), and their addresses populated at least with country?

              • Query evaluate by exact ID

                In the Evaluate API endpoint, we should be able to query based on Entity Type
                i.e. the following API call:
                https://api.labs.cognitive.microsoft.com/academic/v1.0/evaluate?expr=Id=1500058340

                should return the entity 1500058340

                • Repeating AffiliationIDs

                  In the "Author" entity, List<uint> AffiliationID can contain many duplicates. This dramatically slows down query time.
                  From the example query below you can immediately see the Entity ID '1341412227' being repeated over 30 times--ridiculous.
                  {
                  "path": "/author",
                  "author": {
                  "type": "Author",
                  "match": {"DisplayAuthorName": "Chiao-Fe Shu"},
                  "select": [ "DisplayAuthorName", "AffiliationIDs" ],
                  "return": {}
                  }
                  }

                    • Receiving 401 Access Denied with active subscription key

                      Hi,
                      Is this service still operational? I'm receiving a 401 access denied when trying to hit any of the API endpoints. I made a stackoverflow issue here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50383519/microsoft-cognitive-services-subscription-not-working?noredirect=1#comment87783297_50383519

                      Thanks!

                          • 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.

                                      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
