Bridging the Gap: A Deep Dive into the Challenges and Potential Solutions in Medical Research Data Retrieval

Researchers often face difficulties while retrieving medical research data via the ArXiv API due to the max_results parameter, which often defaults to 10 instead of the defined 100, limiting the scope of retrievable data. This conundrum restricts the extent of accessible information, therefore posing a sizable challenge to data extraction from this scientific knowledge repository.

Several solutions have been suggested to address this issue. One method involves incremental augmentation of the 'start' parameter, keeping the max_results at the default 10. Albeit resource-consuming and time-intensive, it helps researchers amass larger datasets despite the limit. Alternatively, contacting the developer community or arXiv support to communicate the problem may provide lasting solutions. As we delve deeper into medical research data retrieval, we must understand its complexities, overcome hurdles, and seize its potential while propelling scientific progress.
