About the data

OpenAlex is more than just a catalog of research publications. We do the work of disambiguating and connecting scholarly works, authors, institutions, sources, and other entities. We then offer the data and analytics on top of it in three different channels, depending on your needs:

  • OpenAlex Web — Our friendly web user interface

  • OpenAlex API — A fast, modern REST API to get the data programmatically

  • Data Snapshot — A periodic snapshot of the data, available to download in its entirety, for free
