bibliometrix provides support for the APIs (application programming interfaces) of Dimensions, NCBI PubMed and Scopus, using functions from packages dimensionsR , pubmedR and rscopus, respectively.
API Support will soon be extended to other sources such as Microsoft Academic and CrossRef.
Bibliometrix can import bibliographic database files and references manager files.
Bibliometrix 3.0 supports bibliographic database export files from Web of Science, Scopus, Dimensions, PubMed and Cochrane Library.
In previous versions, to import a collection, it was necessary to use two functions: readFiles (to import the file in the R environment) and convert2df (to convert the imported file).
"Now, to import a collection just use the convert2df function that will take care of the whole process: import the files in R, read the correct format and convert them into a bibliographic data frame."

Biblioshiny, the web-app included in bibliometrix, is increasingly complete and easy to use.
Since version 3.0, it is possible to use biblioshiny for gathering data directly using 'DS Dimensions' or 'NCBI PubMed' APIs.
Biblioshiny also imports and converts all supported export file formats just with few clicks.
