As we continue to develop our products, there are a number of features that are only available with API 3.0 which is our latest and default API version.
The table below provides a short description of each feature. If you have any questions regarding any of the features or upgrading to 3.0 then please reach out to your Engagement Lead or your Consortia Lead.

|Normalizing Identifiers - We introduced a new system-generated field, which expresses external identifiers (DOIs, PMCID, PMID, ArXiv, Bibcode, ISSNs, and ISBNs) in a normalized format for the purposes of matching and grouping. Normalization is done based on the rules of the identifier type, and may include setting all alpha characters to lowercase, or transforming spaces, dashes, periods and other characters that can be treated as equivalent. It also adds standard prefixes and suffixes as appropriate. For example, https://doi.org/10.1/123, 10.1/123, and https://dx.doi.org/10.1/123 will all appear in this field as https://doi.org/10.1/123. The existing identifier value is unmodified.|
