AAAS adopt Dimensions database to gather global funded research insights

(25 July 2017, London, UK and Washington, D.C.) Scientific publisher the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has licensed access to global funding database Dimensions, to gather insights that will help its teams find expert reviewers and support strategic decision making across the publishing division. Dimensions is powered by the scientific technology company ÜberResearch, part of the Digital Science portfolio of companies.

The Dimensions database contains information on over $1 trillion USD of funded research projects from over 250 funders around the world, along with linked publications data and reviewer finder functionality. Publishers can use the platform to explore trends, track research activity over time, and gather the latest information on funded projects.

Speaking about their decision to adopt the platform, Hannah Heckner, Manager, Product Development at AAAS said, “We’re really excited to dig into the data that Dimensions provides. We were impressed with the way ÜberResearch have worked with funders to gather this valuable resource, and will be using these insights to enhance our understanding of the global research landscape.”

ÜberResearch Co-Founder Steve Leicht added, “Dimensions has a wealth of information and functionality that AAAS can use to really make a difference to their business. We’re really pleased to have them on board and look forward to working together to help them gather actionable business intelligence.”
