Attending the launch of Dimensions from Digital Science
By John Hammersley

Earlier this week I was delighted to be able to attend the launch of the new Dimensions product from our colleagues at Digital Science. Held at the Wellcome Trust building in central London, the evening was a mix of invited talks and panel discussions from speakers across the research workflow, along with a live demo of the new product from Daniel Hook and Christian Herzog who have led this project from its inception. The reaction in the room was very positive and engaged, which was all the more impressive given that this was an after work event on a Monday night!

At its core, Dimensions is connecting together the data behind the different elements of research – including grants, publications, citations, clinical trials and patents – and allowing the user to query that data in a very flexible way to make it as broad or specific as they need. For researchers it provides immediate, free access to search and citation data for 86 million articles and books.
