JH Libraries is now providing access to Dimensions, a new bibliometrics, analytics, and research database. If you’re familiar with InCites, Dimensions provides similar, but complementary, analyses and linked information. Researchers can use Dimensions to:

  • Conduct topical searches across publications, datasets, policy documents, grants, clinical trials, and patents.
  • Demonstrate the impact of your work with comprehensive citation metrics and altmetrics attention for publications.
  • Analyze research outputs of researchers and research organizations. See how your department or team compares to your peers.
  • Retrieve automatically-created analytics and visualizations, and export results to create your own.
  • Compare organizational strengths and identify collaborators and competitors.

Dimensions covers scholarly publications, grants, patents, clinical trials, datasets, policy documents, and technical reports. It enables researchers, research administrators, and their colleagues to explore and analyze links between documents, analyze research activity, identify potential collaborators, and understand the entire research landscape, encompassing individual researchers, research organizations, funders, publications, publishers, open access, trending topics, and more.

In order to get the most from your Dimensions experience, we recommend setting up an optional personal account. Further information on how to set up an account and use Dimensions is available on the Dimensions LibGuide.
