Coscine, short for Collaborative Scientific Integration Environment, is a platform for Research Data Management. The Coscine Python SDK is an open source package that provides a high-level interface to the Coscine REST API. It enables you to automate research workflows and offers the usual functionality available in the Coscine web interface to python programmers.


Uploading a file to a resource:

import coscine
from datetime import datetime

token = "My Coscine API token"
client = coscine.ApiClient(token)
project = client.project("My Project")
resource = project.resource("My Resource")
form = resource.metadata_form()
form["Author"] = "Dr. Akula"
form["Created"] =
form["DAP"] = 3.12
resource.upload("file.csv", "C:/research/file.csv", form)


Installation instructions and an in-depth guide on using the Python SDK can be found in the online documentation. The source code itself has been heavily annotated with numpy-style DOCstrings. You can generate a local copy of the documentation using Sphinx:

py -m pip install -U requirements.txt
cd docs
py -m sphinx.ext.apidoc -o . ../src/coscine
make html
