Description Details Author(s)


R client for the open source article level metrics Lagotto application.


An R interface to the RESTful API from the open source article level metrics software Lagotto, created by the Public Library of Science (PLOS). A number of publishers are using Lagotto, so you can drop in a different base URL to the functions in this package to get to not only PLOS data, but data for Crossref, and more.

Authenication was required, but has now been removed going foward in Lagotto. You only need API keys for a few of the data providers that are running old versions of Lagotto, and that will change as they upgrade their Lagotto sofware.
