SHERPA/RoMEO API Version 2.4 has been Closed Down

The changes to the SHERPA/RoMEO Application Programmers' Interface (API) announced on the 4th September 2013 have now been completed, and the legacy version 2.4 of the API has been closed down.

There is now only one version of the API (V.2.9) whose key features are:

The need to support the legacy data model of API V.2.4 meant that RoMEO's data could not be structured as efficiently as we would have wished, resulting in some duplication of information and other minor oddities. We are now able to upgrade the database to address these issues and improve the quality of the data that RoMEO provides.

We are continuing to work with heavy users of the API - notably CRIS software providers - to encourage them to use it as efficiently as possible and therefore keeping the load on our servers to a reasonable level.
