An open REST API to deliver scholarly article recommendations to researchers around the world.
As a proof of concept we wrote a simple search engine to provide recommendations for a few corpuses. Input an arXiv or PubMed ID, get recommendations for related papers.
We wrote a set of Chrome plugins using the Babel APIs to enhance searching for scholarly articles. Try out our newest plugin, providing recommendations for arXiv.
We haven't written this one yet--but a developer could leverage a Babel endpoint to provide recommendations directly in their application. Imagine having recommendations a click away in Zotero or other reference management tools.
