Python package simplifies access to the WoS RESTful API
A client for Clarivate Analytics' Web of Science RESTful API.
Currently requests and extracts data in RIS format.
From PyPI via pip
$ pip install restful-wos
Latest development version:
$ git clone git+https://github.com/ConnectedSystems/restful-wos.git $ cd restful-wos $ pip install -e .
Firstly, put your Web of Science access tokens into a yaml file in the following format:
restful_wos: wos_lite: YOUR ACCESS TOKEN FOR THE `LITE` API wos_expanded: YOUR ACCESS TOKEN FOR THE `EXPANDED` API
Then simply pass in the location of the file to the RESTful client:
import restful_wos # Create client and send query client = restful_wos.RESTClient('config.yml') search_request = 'TS=(uncertain* AND (catchment OR watershed OR water))' resp = client.query(search_request, time_span=('2018-11-01', '2018-12-31')) # Convert parsed responses into RIS records ris_data = restful_wos.to_ris_text(resp) # Output to a txt file restful_wos.write_file(ris_data, 'ris_output', overwrite=True)
