Dimensions is a dynamic, easy to use, linked-research data platform that re-imagines the way research can be discovered, accessed and analyzed. Within Dimensions, users can explore the connections between grants, publications, clinical trials, patents and policy documents.
As the research landscape evolved dramatically over the past 10 years with new technologies, more data and increasingly diverse research ecosystems, the channels for discovery and the ways impact is measured and assessed have remained static. Digital Science had a vision for a modern research system where data is democratized and the lens through which we measure research outputs broadened.
In collaboration with over 100 community partners, Digital Science invested the unique skills, technology and talent across its portfolio companies to make Dimensions a reality.
In developing Dimensions we aimed to:
- Deliver a cutting-edge research insights platform that meets the needs of today’s research organizations, funders, and publishers
- Break down barriers to access and discovery – de-siloed data and lower costs of access
- Provide a platform for developing relevant, meaningful metrics
