What is Augment API?
The Augment API provides cloud hosted functions to enable three transformations.
- Build Graph: Transform disconnected bibliographic records to a connected graph
- Augment: Transform the graph with data from Research Graph clusters and the global research data infrastructures.
- Create Open Graphs: Transform the augmented graph to interoperable formats such as VIVO RDF, GraphML and JSON.

Two organisation has joined Research Graph as development partners to test this new capability. You can learn about their experiences and the outcome of their work in these webinars.
GESIS – Leibniz-Institute for the Social Sciences is the largest infrastructure institution for the Social Sciences in Germany. With more than 300 employees in two locations (Mannheim and Cologne) GESIS render substantial, nationally and internationally relevant research-based infrastructure services. GESIS has created a large-scale research graph cluster by implementing the Augment API. The resulting graph makes the connections between high-value collections and other scholarly works discoverable. You can explore the GESIS graph at http://researchgraph.org/gesis
How to get involved?
Research Graph is running a number of open collaborative projects such as developing domain specific graphs, and exploring the application of new artificial intelligent tools and modelling for graph analysis. If you are interested to collaborate with us please send us a message at researchgraph.org/about/contact.
Also, Duraspace and Research Graph team are collaborating on a pilot project to enable research repositories to leverage the Augment API capability. If you are interested in integrating the Augment API into your research repository, we would like to invite you to register your interest by filling out the Expression of Interest (EOI) form: https://goo.gl/wfn7PA.
