zbMATH Open: API Solutions and Research Challenges

Matteo Petrera, Dennis Trautwein andIsabel Beckenbach, Dariush Ehsani, FabianMueller, Olaf Teschke, Bela Gipp, Moritz Schubotz

We present zbMATH Open, the most comprehensive collection of reviews and bibliographic metadata of scholarly literature in mathematics. Besides our website https://zbMATH.org which is openly accessible since the beginning of this year, we provide API endpoints to offer our data. The API improves interoperability with others, i.e., digital libraries, and allows using our data for research purposes. In this article, we (1) illustrate the current and future overview of the services offered by zbMATH; (2) present the initial version of the zbMATH links API; (3) analyze potentials and limitations of the links API based on the example of the NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions; (4) and finally, present the zbMATH Open dataset as a research resource and discuss connected open research problems.
