Use our tools to study how research is funded, communicated, commercialised, and impacts the world

We are passionate about ensuring that the scientometrics community has access to the information it needs to develop open, transparent research indicators. We do our best to give back in the form of open data that the community can use to validate existing citation-based metrics and create new ones.  Researchers can use our range of tools to study how research is funded, communicated, commercialised, and impacts the world.
