Your school’s XBRL US Membership offers a number of significant benefits – timely communication, tools and resources, and networking with faculty and other segments of our diverse membership – to help you with research and introduce your students to the wealth of standardized data available for educational activities.
Take a look at the brief video and resources assembled below and don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions or need help getting started.
|Resources shown in this video||Using our data in your classroom and research|
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 202-448-1985 to schedule a walk-through of resources, or to discuss how we can support your classroom objectives – in many cases, we can help work out queries and build templates.
If your findings are being published in a scholarly resource, please cite the XBRL US Public Filings Database (https://xbrl.us/filings-database) and email email@example.com a URL to the finished work.
|API – Application Programming Interface: A set of programming codes that queries data, parse responses, and sends instructions between one software platform and another. APIs are used extensively in providing data services across a range of fields and contexts.
CSV – Comma Separated Value: A text format that structures data through the use of the comma character.
Inline XBRL – An XBRL transport format that embeds XBRL tagging directly into an XHTML document. This produces a single human-readable and machine-readable document.
