Today we are proud to announce that we have opened a subsidiary company, Digital Science & Research LLC based in Moscow, Russia.

A brand-new Russian language website is also now available at www.digitalscience.ru.

The new  company CEO is Dr. Igor Osipov, responsible for driving growth in Russia and in neighbouring CIS countries. Igor brings nearly 20 years of hands-on industry experience forming and translating strategy into sales and business growth, launching new products and services, and building alliances and partnerships between institutional and individual stakeholders at all levels.

Digital Science will focus on deepening the relationships with universities, funders and government organisations, with particular focus on Dimensions from ÜberResearch and Altmetric. Digital Science will also look to quickly introduce its other tools and services, e.g. laboratory software products and authoring tools to the Russian & CIS markets in the very near future.

Daniel Hook, CEO, Digital Science. “

“…today’s announcement is an important development for us as we establish our footprint in Russia. Dr. Osipov’s experience both internationally and in Russia; his work with the University of the Arctic; his understanding of research metrics, as well as his hands-on experience as a university researcher make him uniquely qualified to take Digital Science into Russia at a time when the country is fundamentally reforming and investing in its research infrastructure.”

Dr Osipov has also been appointed as VP Academic and Government to provide research metrics and Dimensions expertise and support across Europe and EMEA funder and government sectors.

Igor Osipov added,

“…with Digital Science’s portfolio of open science and cloud-based technology solutions aimed predominantly at the research landscape, we look forward to accelerating the Russian & CIS research community efforts to further raise its global profile.”
