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 180 million documents with more than 4 billion connections between these records. For more information please visit https://dimensions.ai or try the free version of the Dimensions app at https://app.dimensions.ai. Dimensions has offices in Germany, Romania, US and UK, serving clients globally.
