Dimensions and the Norwegian Centre for Research Data (NSD) have announced a partnership which aims to increase visibility, searchability, and availability of research in the areas of social science, arts and humanities.
The Dimensions platform, which is part of technology company Digital Science, brings together over 140 million publications, awarded research grants, clinical trials, patents, policy documents and their associated metrics.
The European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS), which is managed by NSD, was created and developed by and for European researchers to enhance global visibility of research in the humanities published in academic journals in various European languages. The index enables researchers to better understand and promote the national and international importance of their research.
As a starting point in their collaboration, Dimensions has integrated the ERIH PLUS list as journal list filter in Dimensions, enabling users to more easily identify research outputs that are related to journals listed in ERIH PLUS. Moreover, a new database "ERIH PLUS by Dimensions" has been launched, which combines the functionality and data sources of Dimensions with ERIH PLUS, enabling users to drill deeper into the research outputs within the journals of ERIH PLUS.
