Supporting both your researchers and your organization

The research process and landscape is growing ever more complex, interconnected and competitive. As a research organization, success relies on bringing in funding and top researchers, and ensuring those researchers have access to the best tools. Dimensions can help you ensure your organization is well-positioned, nationally or internationally, to attract much-needed resources, and provide researchers with the tools, data, and resources they need to succeed. Dimensions is uniquely designed to support different groups within a research organization, from research administrators to students and research staff.

Support your researchers in their information search

The free version of Dimensions provides openly-available search and metrics for more than 100 million publications. With an institutional license to Dimensions Plus or Dimensions Analytics, the content they can access expands to cover grants, clinical trials, patents, and policy documents, enabling them to gain deeper insights into a topic or field.

Deliver the fastest route to Open Access content

Thanks to ReadCube technology, with just one click, users can view full-text PDF versions of millions of Open Access articles, and add publications to their ReadCube Papers library. All of this ensures your researchers get the content they need, the moment they need it.

Strengthen funding applications and reporting

Analyze trends, identify potential collaborators, explore previous grants, and pull data and metrics from across the research lifecycle to create more effective proposals and develop your most comprehensive reporting yet.

Enhance evaluation and inform strategic planning

Advanced analytical capabilities in Dimensions Plus and Dimensions Analytics make it possible to compare and contrast data from research institutions around the world – including your own. Map the competitive landscape, explore cross-disciplinary opportunities, and position your research programs for the future.

Trace the impacts of research

Explore the influence and outcomes of ongoing and past collaborations, and follow the pathways to ‘real world’ impact through links between publications, patents, and policies.

A custom solution build for you

Beyond the core versions of the Dimensions platform, we can work with you to develop a uniquely customizable solution that showcases your institution’s expertise and resources.
