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": "https://openalex.org/P4310319965",
"display_name": "Springer Nature",
"alternate_titles": [
"エイプレス",
"Springer Nature Group",
"施普林格-自然出版集团"
],
"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.
