About us

With Dimensions, Digital Science launched an innovative research data and tool infrastructure. We deliver context by taking different data sets out of their silos to create a heavily interlinked overarching dataset that described the whole research lifecycle: from funding input (grants), through research outputs (publications and datasets) and translation / application of research results (clinical trials, patents), attention (altmetrics and citations) and finally to policy-level impact (mentions of research results in policy papers).

In total, Dimensions today contains more than 150 million documents with more than 4 billion connections between these records.
