The world’s largest linked research information dataset
With Dimensions, you can search across multiple content types, ranging from publications to grants, clinical trials, patents, datasets and policy documents. The linking of all these data enables you to view the information in context, gain new insights from complex analytics, and trace the relationships between your results. For example, review the funders or grants behind a publication, or identify where published research led to a patent or a mention in a policy document.
