“Dimensions data for scientometric research via API and Google BigQuery”

Dimensions is a unique database that extends beyond traditional publication and citation databases by including the whole research and innovation lifecycle including grants metadata, patents, clinical trials and policy documents. We will present the application of API and introduce the latest innovation of linking the Dimensions data via Googlecloud and enable analyses via Google Big Query. This unlocks the full potential of the world’s largest research information database by opening and combine these data securely with private and other external databases and research information systems.

This provides access to all the Dimensions data – ready for large scale analysis or to use it with visualisation via Business Intelligence tools like tableau.
