Digital Science and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) announce an agreement that extends access to Dimensions Analytics to users across the ASME organization. With Dimensions, ASME has access to an enriched and interlinked database across multiple content types that can track the academic and broader impacts of their publications and increase the discoverability of their content.
Dimensions brings together data from over 105 million publications, $1.6tn in grants, 495,000 clinical trials, 39 million patents, 437,000 policy documents, and their associated metrics. By collating information across the research lifecycle, Dimensions provides a powerful tool ASME can use to monitor, plan, and evaluate a range of editorial, marketing, sales and other critical business activities.
ASME originally invested in one-time Dimensions Plan S reports for their journals last year. Because they found the data featured in those reports so useful, ASME subscribed to Dimensions Analytics, ensuring they had comprehensive access to Dimensions data for a variety of their in-house use cases.
“We are excited to have access to Dimensions data previously unavailable to us, which will assist us in our ongoing development of ASME Publications,” says Philip DiVietro, Managing Director, ASME Publishing. “Anytime we can increase efficiency and make more informed decisions, we add value for ASME members and volunteers.”
Christian Herzog, CEO of the Data and Analytics group at Digital Science, adds, “We look forward to working with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and hope our data can support their goal of helping the global engineering community develop solutions to benefit lives and livelihoods.”
ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions to real-world challenges. Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world.
