Publishing services provider Sheridan, a CJK Group company, has expanded its partnership with research technology company Digital Science to enable support for Dimensions Badges and Figshare supplemental data widgets across the PubFactory hosting platform. In doing so, Sheridan continues to invest in providing the best possible experience for publishers as well as their author and reader communities.
Launched in January 2018, the Dimensions Badges provide citation counts for any publication. Driven by the underlying technology of the Dimensions platform, which indexes over 96 million publications, users can click on the Dimensions Badges to explore all of the citations a publication has received, with further detail on when they occurred and how the academic influence of the publication compares to other articles published in the same discipline.
The Figshare widgets are a dynamic, embeddable integration that make it easy for publishers to provide the supplemental data relating to individual articles alongside the main text of the article, ensuring it is much more discoverable and encouraging reuse.
José Fossi, Vice President of Client Services, Sheridan PubFactory, commented, “The scholarly landscape is increasingly open and connected. We are committed to ensuring that our publishers can benefit from this evolving ecosystem. We are delighted to partner with Digital Science, which allows us to extend their powerful technologies and services to publishers hosted on our PubFactory platform.”
Nicko Goncharoff, Chief Business Development Officer at Digital Science, adds, “Collaborating across the scholarly ecosystem is critical to the future success of research. We’re really pleased to be extending our partnership with Sheridan, and look forward to working with the publishers who host content on the PubFactory platform to deliver these increasingly essential functionality and associated benefits to their authors and readers ”.
Publishers interested in adding the Dimensions Badges or supplemental data widgets to their content should contact their PubFactory Account Manager for further information.
