Here is the second update about changes that we are making to our API. If you submit applications via the API or are using the API for journals search and retrieval, then you will need to adjust your integrations.
Although development is still progressing, we want to get as much information out to our API users as we can. Here are some key points:
- The only thing that is changing is the data model because we are changing some of the questions that we ask in our application form.
- Only the Journal Search and Retrieval and Applications models are changing. CRUD Articles and article search are not changing.
- We will have a new URL for the API. The applications and journals API calls must be sent to the new URL.
- We will establish a redirection for Articles calls.
We have been exploring ways to allow users to test their integrations before the new API goes live. These might include a sandbox and a whole test site for you to upload to. We will have more details on the exact testing features we can offer as we draw nearer to launch.
