repec-package: repec: access RePEc data through API

Description Details Author(s) See Also

Description

repec provides a way to interact with the RePEc API (Application Programming Interface) in order to get various information stored on RePEc about authors, items, institutions, etc.

Details

By using the functions of this package, you will be able to import RePEc information in R. You will need to ask for an access code by following the instructions at https://ideas.repec.org/api.html. The code will be needed when calling most of the functions by using the code parameter. One way to avoid passing explicitly the code is to create the REPEC_API_KEY environment variable. The code below can be put in your .RProfile so that it is always available when you start R:

1
2
# YOURCODE is your personal access code
Sys.setenv(REPEC_API_KEY = 'YOURCODE')
