The Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy is focused on linking bibliometric research with research policy, presenting the newest bibliometric research in the Nordic countries, and creating better links between the bibliometric research groups and their PhD students. 

Dimensions (part of Digital Science) are excited to be supporting this year’s workshop and to be presenting a session in the preliminary pre-workshop.

Wednesday 3rd November 13:20-14:20

Title: Data, Connections & Impact – Using Dimensions for end-to-end powerful AI research discovery and analysis

Abstract: A university’s research is not just its academic papers. Patents, clinical trials, datasets and grant data show the full output of a university, including previously unknown or underappreciated research activity and impact. Using data from research activities in the Nordic region, Lea and Ben will show the true research lifecycle which goes completely unreported if one only focuses on research articles and traditional bibliometrics. Our aim is to show Nordic institutions how they can use Dimensions, the world’s largest linked research information dataset, to perform large scale analysis in a single data infrastructure collecting and aligning the best data available.

During the presentation, we will demonstrate the broad academic, societal and economic impact of Nordic research, build comprehensive university profiles, measure progress towards SDGs related outputs, support Open Access and transformative agreements, identify successful national/international partners and explore emerging topics in research and grants
