Get a single publisher

It's easy to get a publisher from from the API with: /publishers/<entity_id>. Here's an example:

That will return a Publisher object, describing everything OpenAlex knows about the publisher with that ID:

  "id": "",
  "display_name": "Springer Nature",
  "alternate_titles": [
    "Springer Nature Group",
  "hierarchy_level": 0,
  // other fields removed for brevity

You can make up to 50 of these queries at once by requesting a list of entities and filtering on IDs using OR syntax.

External IDs

You can look up publishers using external IDs such as a Wikidata ID:

Available external IDs for publishers are:

Select fields
