Your Thesis and Public Sharing, APIs for Use In Research | 23 Research Things

The 23 Research Things blog introduced two new Things this week that cover a lot of ground. Check out Thing #13 on your thesis and public sharing, and follow it up with Thing #14 on APIs for use in research to broaden your knowledge and enhance your skills.


Your Thesis and Public Sharing (Thing 13)

Once upon a time, theses could be found in the stacks of the library, but now they are being made available online in university repositories for the whole world to read. Naturally, this brings up many questions for graduate researchers: does it count as prior publication? Can I include third party copyright? How do I track citations and impact? In this post, Dimity Flanagan revisits Thing 19 from 2017 to shed some light on these considerations.

APIs For Use In Research – The Nuts And Bolts (Thing 14)

Ever stop to think about how the apps on your mobile phone or tablet receive and exchange data over the Internet? The next time you check your Facebook app, look for directions using Google maps, or do your online banking, chances are these are all happening using an Application Programming Interface (or API for short). In this post, Greg D’Arcy demystifies the wonderful world of APIs.
