Apply for access to the LIWC API

 

The LIWC API is available exclusively from Receptiviti. It provides approved developers and data scientists with an easy-to-use API that delivers deep insights into people’s psychologies and cognitive states by analyzing natural language and text.

The LIWC API generates all of the LIWC2015 variables, plus additional measures of psychology, personality, emotion, tone, and more.

If you're interested in using the LIWC API, please complete the application form below -- it's our way of getting to know you. We review all applications and typically respond to approved applications within 7-10 business days.

Please note that we are very selective in our approval process, and only a small number of the applications we receive are approved. Be advised that we may reject applications on the basis of insufficient information alone, so please provide as much as possible.
