Dataset: Read Introduction
The Dataset: Read Web service is used to get information (title, description, creator, contributor(s), creation date and last modification date) for a dataset belonging to an OSF Web Services instance.
Developers communicate with the Dataset: Read Web service using the HTTP GET method. You may request one of the following mime types: (1) text/xml, (2) application/rdf+xml, (3) application/rdf+n3 or (4) application/json. The content returned by the Web service is serialized using the mime type requested and the data returned depends on the parameters selected.
