ISIDORE APIs are available at https://api.isidore.science through the GET method on HTTP or HTTPS. They provide a fast, accurate and reliable service for querying ISIDORE data with extensive search functionalities (autocompletion, spelling correction, multi-criteria, boolean and faceted searches, sorting, aggregation of responses, etc.).
Each request to the engine is submitted through a URI pointing to a specific web service. The response is a stream in XML (default format) or JSON format.
For example: full-text search on a maximum of 5 resources containing the term "cnrs".
We provide the following 8 services:
https://api.isidore.science/resource/search : to carry out research on resources
For example: theses in Linguistics about cartography:
Available parameters: q, output, page, replies, sort, lang, facet, cluster
List of possible filters: uri, url, author, date, language, type, discipline, subject, collection, scope
List of available facets: author, date, language, type, discipline, subject, collection, scope
https://api.isidore.science/resource/suggest : to get research suggestions on resources
For example: autocompletion on concepts and authors starting with "mar"
For example: autocompletion on the first 15 authors starting with "wal"
https://api.isidore.science/resource/content : to access the detailed content of a resource
Available parameter: uri
https://api.isidore.science/collection/search : to carry out research on collections
ex : For example: "Publication" type collections related to music
https://api.isidore.science/collection/suggest : to get research suggestions on collections
ex : autocompletion on collections containing the term "revue francaise"
https://api.isidore.science/vocabulary/search : to carry out research on the vocabularies used by ISIDORE for metadata enrichment
For example: all concepts related to the web
For example: concepts related to politics in Rameau or Pactols
https://api.isidore.science/vocabulary/suggest : to get suggestions of notation terms on the vocabularies used by ISIDORE
For example: autocompletion on ten concepts starting with "vedet"
https://api.isidore.science/sparql : to query the RDF triple store of ISIDORE resources
Queries to the ISIDORE API are built using the following parameters:
|q||query to be executed||q=radicalisation
|possible to use operators AND | OR | NOT and quotation marks|
|output||Output format||possible values: xml (default) or json||XML schemas are given at the page bottom|
|page||pagination/shift||page=3, to display results 21 to 30 if 10 documents per page|
|replies||maximum number of results per page||replies=25, to return 25 documents per page||by default, the system returns 10 documents; 1000 documents at most per request|
|sort||sorting results||possible values: random, relevance (by relevance), novelty (by novelty), title_az|title_za (by title), author_az|author_za (by author name) or date_asc|date_desc (by date)||sorting is done in ascending (_asc, _az) or descending (_desc, _za) order|
|lang||Labels language in the response flow||possible values: fr (French by default), en (English) or es (Spanish)|
|facet||facet(s) to be returned||facet=discipline (returns the discipline facet)
facet=author,replies=100,sort=items,order=DESC&facet=language,sort=alpha,order=ASC (returns the author facet [first 100 sorted from the author with the most occurrences] AND the language facet [sorted alphabetically]))
|the list of available facets depends on the services (see above); the number of replies, sorting and order of a facet are managed by replies, sort and order|
|cluster||filter on which you want to aggregate the results||cluster=scope,5 (cluster of 5 replies on the perimeter of the sources)||the results can only be aggregated by using one facet|
|feed||selects an autocompletion base||Possible values : feed-creator or feed-subject|
|uri||returns a resource according to its URI||uri=10670/1.zkmwro|
|url||returns a resource according to its URL||url=https://medihal.archives-ouvertes.fr/medihal-01329752|
|author||filters resources according to an author id||author=minel_jean_luc||surname_first_name (the alignment with ORCID, IdRef, ... bases is in progress)|
|date||filters resources according to their release date||date=1990 (resources of the 1990s)||the values of the available dates are present in the key attribute of the date facet|
|language||filters resources according to their language||language=http://lexvo.org/id/iso639-3/ita (resources in Italian)||the values of the available languages are present in the key attribute of the language facet|

|subject||filters resources by subject||subject=http://data.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/cb12009547n (resources enriched by "society" concept of Rameau)|
|collection||filters resources according to a collection||collection=10670/2.1n5lcu (the resources of the collection "Portail des instituts français de recherche à l'étranger")||the values of the available collections are present in the key attribute of the collection facet|
|scope||filters resources according to their documentary scope (source, event, publications, etc.)||scope=http://www.rechercheisidore.fr/subject/primaires||the values of the available scopes are present in the key attribute of the scope facet|
|referentiel||filters concepts according to the uri of a vocabulary used in ISIDORE: Rameau, LCSH, BNE, Gemet, Pactols, Geoethno and Geonames for example||referentiel=http://pactols.frantiq.fr/||the list of vocabularies URIs can be found via this URL: facet=referentiel|
