Size and enrichments matter

Not only is Dimensions the world’s largest research information database, our clear goal is to enrich and link the data for you as much as possible: with keywords and concepts, organizations, researchers, or machine learning-based classifications. This brings thousands of data silos together in one linked data set for you – ready to be explored.

Get ahead of the curve

Digital Science has developed Dimensions as the world’s largest research and innovation resource to support all researchers, those designing research strategies and those managing innovation.

You can see the past, present and future of research by:

  • Analyzing the impact of clinical trials, patents and policies
  • Sourcing information from journals worldwide, as well as preprints, datasets, proceedings and books
  • Identifying future trends by following grant funding

With deep indexing of more than 98 million publications and 150 million patents, Dimensions provides enriched data that makes research easier. This includes specific, disambiguated data on individual people as well as institutions, using AI-based categorization and a wide range of indicators and metrics. 

Looking into the future

Using Dimensions yields a 360-degree view of all research, including researcher profiles, institutional profiles and global trends. From that wide perspective, you can utilize the power of natural language processing, AI and machine learning to gain insights from across a huge range of documentation and data.

Dimensions’ range and sophistication of search capabilities means  you’ll be able to understand who and what is driving scientific discovery, where the next related innovation may come from, and who you’ll need to collaborate with to make it happen.
