Digital Science’s Dimensions database will now integrate more than 1.4 million datasets as a new content type. The datasets will be available to all users – including those using the free version of Dimensions.
Data will be sourced from figshare.com and include datasets uploaded on figshare, as well as from other repositories such as Dryad, Zenodo, Pangea, and Figshare hosted repositories including ACS and NIH. Datasets are defined as items shared on repositories which are categorised as datasets – this excludes e.g. preprints, posters, images, and software. The datasets will be updated daily and more repositories will be added following the initial release. They will become the sixth content type added to Dimensions after grants, publications, citations, alternative metrics, clinical trials and patents.
The addition of datasets will allow institutions to discover and analyse trends in publicly available data at institutional level and makes even more linked data available in one platform, rather than disconnected databases.
Dimensions is a modern, innovative, linked research knowledge system that re-imagines discovery and access to research. Developed by Digital Science in collaboration with over 100 leading research organizations around the world, Dimensions brings together grants, publications, citations, alternative metrics, clinical trials, patents and datasets to deliver a platform that enables users to find and access the most relevant information faster, analyse the academic and broader outcomes of research, and gather insights to inform future strategy.
