D3.1 – API Definition (common search API)
D3.1 marks the delivery of the first version of a common search API (Application Programming Interface) for open data. This API will be implemented by all PaNOSC partner sites and ExPaNDS and any further facilities that want to join this effort as part of the EOSC. This search API allows to find datasets and data publications based on relevant domain specific metadata and can be used by third parties to find data that has been released from any facility-imposed embargo period, as well as by the original researchers. This will be an important entry point for anyone to use the EOSC visualisation, processing or data transfer services that are being developed in other PaNOSC Work Packages.
