OED Researcher API

The OED Researcher API is designed to allow researchers to dig deeper into the huge and uniquely curated English language dataset that is the OED. Our API offers prototype access to multiple endpoints, allowing you to explore and experiment.

We are inviting you to take part in shaping the OED Researcher API. Your shared insights will help us ensure the API meets the needs of the wider academic community, informing our development work to provide a suitable selection of endpoints.

Please submit your request for access to the OED Researcher API via the form. We will be in contact soon.
