NASA ADS Queries (astroquery.nasa_ads)

Getting Started

This module provides an interface to the online SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System. At the moment only the “simple search”, i.e. omni-box search is available, and only a subset of the results are accessible.

Examples

Search works by specific identifier

from astroquery import nasa_ads as na
# the "^" makes ADS to return only papers where Persson
# is first author
results = na.ADS.query_simple('^Persson Origin of water\
     around deeply embedded low-mass protostars') results[0].title

# to sort after publication date
results.sort(['pubdate'])

#  get the title of the last hit
title = results[-1]['title'][0]

# printout the authors of the last hit
print results[-1]['authors']
