The SANLiC Conference provides the opportunity for the exchange of ideas and information in support of scholarly electronic resource management among their member institutions. The intended beneficiary groups are e-resource librarians and other personnel who have an interest or stake in scholarly electronic resource management. The conference will gather brilliant minds and provide an excellent platform for publishers to interact with e-resource librarians within the context of consortium membership to make this a memorable experience for everyone attending, and promises to be the event not to be missed.

Digital Science are delighted to be attending and presenting the following presentation.

Date and time: Tuesday 3 August @ 14:40 – 15:00 SAST (13:40 – 14:00 BST)

From Funding to Impact: Empowering Universities in full institutional research analysis
The research activities of a university encompass far more than just academic publications. Digital Science’s Dimensions Analytics draws together nearly 6 million grants with over $2 trillion in awarded funding, 120 million publications, the world’s 137 million patents, hundreds of thousands of clinical trials, millions of datasets and policy documents from global NGOs, making full spectrum analysis of a university’s real collaborations, impact and research activities available for the first time. Ben McLeish and Lea Lipitakis demonstrate how these data have been gathered, interlinked nearly 5 billion times and affiliated to researchers, institutions and countries, as well as how these data can be used to benchmark institutions, analyse Open Access trends, funding patterns and much more. 

Digital Science presenters: Ben McLeish, Directory of Advocacy and Outreach and Lea Lipitakis, Product Solutions Manager for Dimensions
