Data access for scientometric research
ISSI has partnered with Digital Science to give ISSI members enhanced access to Altmetric and Dimensions data for scientometric research, at no cost.
Any ISSI member in good standing can apply for no-cost access to Dimensions and Altmetric web tools and APIs. A committee of ISSI members will provide expert assessment of researchers’ applications and guidance on using Altmetric and Dimensions in their research.
The partnership opens up fresh research opportunities for exploration of the more than 109 million publications and 1 billion citations indexed in Dimensions (interlinked with millions of grants, patents and data and hundreds of thousands of clinical trial records and policy documents), and 108 million mentions of 13 million scholarly works captured by Altmetric across seventeen distinct online platforms.
