About us:

With Dimensions, Digital Science launched an innovative research data and tool infrastructure, broadening the view of the research landscape after decades of focus on the publication/citation complex. The guiding principle, to deliver context, was to take 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 translation/application of research results (clinical trials, patents), attention (altmetric and citations) and finally to policy-level impact (mentions of research results in policy papers).

In total, Dimensions today contains more than 170 million documents with more than 4 billion connections between these records. For more information please visit or try the free version of the Dimensions app at Dimensions has offices in Germany, Romania, US and UK, serving clients globally.
