Eldis Open Data

Over the years Eldis has collected, summarised and categorised tens of thousands of research documents on a broad range of development themes. All the data collected by Eldis is available to be re-used for free under a creative commons license (Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License). We make the data available through the Knowledge Services Open API.

On the API pages you will also find details of a number of tools and applications that enable you to use Eldis content on your website or combine Eldis data with your own dataset. We also provide the API documentation for developers to enable you to develop new applications.

Newsfeeds for website managers

If you manage a website you can also make use of our tailored RSS/XML newsfeeds on key development themes and regions. Items in the feeds contain a title, summary, and a link to the full text document (usually a PDF).

A list of the currently maintained newsfeeds is available on the Subscribe page. Other feeds are available but may not be actively maintained. Please contact us if you have any questions about using Eldis newsfeeds.
