Digital Science and PLOS, a non-profit, Open Access publisher, have announced an agreement that will provide Dimensions Analytics and API to PLOS. Dimensions enables publishers to delve into a breadth of data and metrics to perform invaluable analyses and translate them into usable business insights.
PLOS will utilise the powerful analytical features to monitor trends in the Open Access landscape and to help shape their business development strategies.
Dimensions is a research information platform which has been developed to provide a broader view on the research process and activities beyond publications and citations only. While covering 108 million publications with 1.2 billion citations, Dimensions also contains $1.6 trillion of funded grants, 500,000 clinical trials, 36 million patents, 450k policy documents and 1.5 million datasets as a linked dataset to create a deep understanding of the resources injected into the research system and how they translate into outputs and impact.
PLOS joins a host of other OA publishers including Frontiers, Hindawi and eLife, who are using Dimensions in a number of creative ways. Dimensions will further be running workshops with PLOS staff later in the year.
