Springer Announces Winners of First API Challenge

By Theresa Cramer

From the press release:

The Springer API Challenge 1.0 was a competition for original, non-commercial applications using Springer metadata and content APIs.  The Challenge’s goal was to offer users new ways to find, visualize, and/or manipulate relevant data drawn from Springer’s large and growing content database.

The first prize was awarded to SpringerQuotes. This application lets the user search and read the open access articles from Springer in a web application. If the user finds an interesting article, he or she can create and share quotes from paragraphs or even individual sentences by highlighting these sections directly in the web browser.

KontentLinks received the second prize. This innovative way of exploring scientific content allows researchers to create meaningful connections between various types of content (i.e. articles, book chapters, images, etc.), share, rate and comment on them, and finally explore the emerging content webs.

The judges awarded the third prize to JournalSuggest, a website which provides suggested answers to some common questions that researchers have when preparing articles or grants.
