Top Highlights From Digital Science in 2013
2013 was a great year for Digital Science and our portfolio companies. So much so, we would like to share with you some of our major highlights. In keeping with tradition we’ve produced an end of year list, but as the usual list of 10 just wasn’t quite enough, we’ve chosen to present our top 11!
In no particular order, here are our top 11 highlights of 2013 – there has of course been so much more happening, so do check our blog archive for all our other exciting news:
• Symplectic launched their first version of Dimensions and hosted their first conferences in North America and Australia.
• Digital Science donated the SureChem collection of >15million chemical structures from world patents into the public domain through the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).
• Digital Science invested in ÜberResearch, a company that offers decision support solutions for science funding organisations.
• Digital Science awarded a fifth Catalyst Grant since the scheme started in 2011.
• In February Altmetric announced free access to the Altmetric data for institutional repositories and for individual librarians – a great way to give back to the community.
• Digital Science released its very own home-grown software tool, Projects – a safe, simple and structured way for scientific researchers to organise their research outputs.
• In 2013 almost 54 million pages were read on ReadCube – to put that in perspective, that translates into over 97 years worth of reading!
• BioRAFT released the “Radium” version of the BioRAFT platform, with major upgrades to management dashboard, inspection module, and training module, expanding its robust toolset for safety, compliance and training for research organisations.
• Digital Science put together a very festive video to celebrate the holiday season: The Christmas Collider.
We would like to wish you all a very happy New Year and we hope that 2014 will be just as successful as 2013!
