About your use of the Dimensions Badges and Metrics API

You may only use the Dimensions Metrics API if:

– you are an individual, for your personal, non-commercial purposes, which will extend to include the display of metrics relating to work you have authored;

– if you are acting on behalf of an institution, business or other entity (“Organization”) and you have registered with us to use the Dimensions Metrics API, in which case you may use the Dimensions Metrics API for that Organization’s internal, non-commercial purposes, which will extend to include the display of metrics relating to content associated with the Organization within any free-to-use website or other application owned by the Organization (even though adverts may be placed on the website or application and/or you may benefit from increased traffic to that website, as applicable) or other use case we agree in writing (feel free to ask!).

By registering with us, you represent that you have authority to bind the Organization, and your agreement to this agreement will be treated as the agreement of that Organization. Any use of the Dimensions Metrics API by or on behalf of an institution, business or other entity that has not registered with us will not be authorized.

You may use our free Dimensions “badges” for the permitted display of metrics, or by such other method you choose, provided such method ensures that only the latest available metrics are displayed.

You agree to make no more than one request per second via the Dimensions Metrics API and to give appropriate credit by including an attribution is the page where the metrics are displayed and (where electronic) that links back to dimensions.ai, but which does not suggest we endorse you or your use in any way.

You represent that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful, and agree not to use the Dimensions Metrics API for any purpose not expressly permitted. Without limiting the foregoing, you agree not to use the Dimensions Metrics API for any restricted act listed in the Acceptable Use section of our general terms of use.
