Reviewing ‘Dimensions’ – a New Citation Index

In the last year, Digital Science has rolled out Dimensions, a new index which includes publications and their citations, but also grants, clinical trials and patents. It indexes data from CrossRef, PubMed Central, Open Citation Data and directly from publishers and claims to have substantially more records than Web of Science. But how is the interface? How good are the author and institution entries? Does it have any of the usual teething problems? What does it add to what you can do?

Please join us to discuss these issues and many more. The session will give attendees and opportunity to share their own experiences with other academic research data colleagues across Australia, so that we can all come to understand better this new service. The focus is on community evaluation, so the meeting will not involve a presentation by Digital Science staff.
