This challenge is to build a programmatic interface or “app” using Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge API (application programming interface) that enables users to explore data relationships in an engaging or visual way. Specifically, this challenge focuses on the Web of Science content set, the world’s leading citation database and the flagship content set available on the Web of Knowledge platform. Technical requirements and instructions for how to obtain credentials and access the API are available in the Detailed Description.
This challenge has unique terms, please read the challenge-specific agreement carefully. Submissions must include both a written proposal and a prototype implementation using the Web of Knowledge API:
- Solvers grant the Seeker a non-exclusive license upon submission. By submitting a proposal, Solvers grant to the Seeker a royalty-free, perpetual, and non-exclusive license to use any information or intellectual property included in the proposal and/or implementations.
- There is a guaranteed award of $10,000. The minimum award for this challenge is $10,000 (“Minimum Award”), which is guaranteed to be awarded to at least one Solver.
- Exclusive option at the Seeker’s discretion. The Seeker may (at it’s sole discretion), award individual Solvers an additional $20,000 (“Additional Award”) to obtain ownership to that Solver’s submission.
- Includes written proposal + working implementation using API. Submissions must include both a written proposal and working implementation that prototypes the proposed idea using examples that interact with the Web of Knowledge API and integrate Web of Science content.
- API access will be provided. Access credentials to the API interface will be provided to each Solver, after the Solver agrees to specific terms for data usage in the challenge.
