New Citation Database Launches Today
Looking at the two most complete researcher workflow portfolios, those owned by Digital Science and Elsevier, one of the glaring differences has been Digital Science’s lack of a citation database to compete with Elsevier’s Scopus. Today, Digital Science announced Dimensions, a new product that includes a citation database, a research analytics suite, and streamlined article discovery and access. An important innovation in a number of ways, Dimensions will offer stiff new competition for Elsevier and Clarivate.
On Friday, I spoke with Digital Science CEO Daniel Hook and Digital Science portfolio company executives Christian Herzog and Robert McGrath. I received a presentation and was able to ask questions about Dimensions. I received a live demo, but I have not used the product directly myself.
