How to request API Access

The University Dimensions subscription includes a limited number of API connections that are available to researchers interested in doing a more in-depth analysis of the documents included within Dimensions.

API access is by request-only. Requestors must be currently affiliated with SU, and must have a personal account setup in Dimensions. To set up a personal account, access Dimensions, then click on "Register". Create an account using your SU email address. 

API Request Process:

  • Send an email to your designated subject librarian 
  • In the email, include a statement about why you're interested in API access, details about the project, and the project timeline
  • If approved, your subject librarian will contact you with instructions on how to access the API from your Dimensions account, and provide you with guidelines for use
