How it all began
Digital Science was launched in 2010 after our founders realised that science had yet to seize the opportunities offered by digital technologies transforming our lives. The software that researchers, academic institutions, publishers, funders, and industrial research organisations used at that time, was largely home-built or niche. We believed we could develop and deliver the high-quality software tools that researchers deserved.
We started off with a team of five people. Today, we have more than 500 colleagues in over 20 countries worldwide, and we work with hundreds of partners to deliver value and success.
Over the years we have added a broad range of trusted software, insights, analytics, and content to meet the community’s needs. Digital Science is now a vibrant mix of the companies that we’ve invested in over the last decade, and our customers benefit from the deep domain expertise associated with each of the products.
Today, Digital Science is a trusted partner providing research workflow solutions and data and analytical insights.
