MS Academic search API going down again and again RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am working with MS academic search API to get some data. However, the api seems to be going down much more frequently in the last 2 days. Although, I have encountered such issues in the past, this time its happening more frequently. Can you please let me know if there is a problem from my side? (If am querying too much the api and that's the reason Microsoft is denying me their services?)

  • Hello Ramesh_UTA,

    Thank you for reaching out to us. Currently there is a maximum query per minute limit (200), and if the limit is exceeded by a user the API may be temporarily unavailable. If you are still experiencing issues with the API, can you please send any more detailed information regarding what you're experiencing to acadapi@microsoft.com so we can assist you with troubleshooting?

    Best regards,

    Thomas, Academic Search Editor
