Abstract: Specification of a standard API that enables 3rd party software programs to access and reuse Research Information maintained in Current Research Information Systems (CRIS). The primary objectives of the CERIF API are a) to facilitate the interoperability of CRIS systems and their integration with other information systems and b) to enable the development of applications, services and components that can access and reuse information across different CRIS systems in a standard, unified way. The CERIF API is mainly addressed to a) organizations and individuals (e.g. software developers, product managers, CRIS managers) involved in the implementation of CRIS software platforms, individual CRIS systems and related services and b) organizations and individuals (e.g. software developers, product managers) involved in the development of software applications, services and components that can benefit from retrieving and reusing the information stored in CRIS systems.
