Scholarly APIs: Current and future value

Research performing and funding organizations increasingly use scholarly application programming interfaces (APIs) to build insights and inform strategy, to the point where it is impossible to imagine a future without fundamental reliance on these interconnected data flows. Currently, your organization uses multiple APIs without which it could probably not function. Scholarly APIs have, however, received limited recognition for their strategic importance and significant potential in the scholarly industry. How do leaders from different areas think strategically about API interoperability and increasing needs for data exchange as foundations for research outcomes? Join this unique and first-time panel discussion to learn from leadership why APIs are intermediaries that scholarly professionals must know about and plan for.
