Dimensions the next generation approach to data discovery

The research landscape exists in silos, often split by proprietary tools and databases that do not meet the needs of the institutions they were developed for. What if we could change that? In this session we’ll showcase Dimensions: a platform developed by Digital Science in collaboration with over 100 research organizations around the world to provide a more complete view of research from idea to impact.

We’ll discuss how the data now available enables institutions to more easily gather the insights they need to inform the most effective development of their organization’s activities, and look at how linking different sections of the scholarly ecosystem (including grants, publications, patents and data) can deliver powerful results that can then be integrated into existing systems and workflows through the use of APIs and other applications.

In particular, we’ll explore how the Dimensions approach to re-imagining discovery and access to research will transform the scholarly landscape, and the opportunities it presents for the research community.
