MAG format
The MAG format is deprecated. The MAG format snapshot was maintained and updated until July 7, 2022. Now, the native-format snapshot will be the only one supported.
If you're looking for a drop-in replacement to your existing MAG import, you're in the right place. The MAG Format offers most of the same data you'll find in our Standard Format--but presented in a way that will work pretty smoothly with MAG-based pipelines you've already got.
However, although the OpenAlex Format is very close to the same as what you were getting from MAG, there are some important and unavoidable differences--starting with how you download the data. There are also changes to what data is collected and updated, and some minor changes to the schema.
