/institutions attribute filters

You can filter using these attributes of the Institution entity object (click each one to view their documentation on the Institution object page):

/institutions convenience filters

These filters aren't attributes of the Institution object, but they're included to address some common use cases:

continent

Value: a String with a valid continent filter​
Returns: institutions that are located in the chosen continent.

display_name.search

Value: a search string
Returns: institutions with a display_name containing the given string; see the search page for details.
In most cases, you should use the search parameter instead of this filter because it uses a better search algorithm.

has_ror

Value: a Boolean (true or false)
Returns: institutions that have or lack a ROR ID, depending on the given value.

is_global_south

Value: a Boolean (true or false)
Returns: institutions that are located in the Global South.
