Dimensions for Universities is now available!

We are very pleased to announce the release of Dimensions for Universities! Built by ÜberResearch, a leading software developer for funding organisations and part of the Digital Science family, Dimensions for Universities is a web-based tool designed for universities to analyse and understand the funding landscape.

‘DfU’, as it’s been known around the office, was born out of a recognition that funders and research institutions have the same problem – comparing their funding at a global level. Universities will usually have a lot of data on their own funding, but very little on how their funding compares to other institutions. Some public funders will release their funding data annually but it is often quite difficult to get valuable insight from it without spending significant resources, both in staff and time. Dimensions for Universities will dramatically decrease the resources needed for such analysis as the data has been de-duplicated, disambiguated and categorised into a digestible and intuitive format.

Symplectic is dedicated to reducing the administrative burden surrounding the research lifecycle at an institution. Leveraging ÜberResearch’s relationships with science funders, provides an unique opportunity to further reduce that burden at an institution. Dimensions’ development has been a truly collaborative effort. ÜberResearch worked with over 20 development partners (mostly research funders) to build a unique product for funding organisations; while we have guided the adaptation of its powerful features for research organisations.

We are confident that every research institution can benefit from its many features so get in touch if you’d like to request trial access or arrange a demo.

The automatic search features are a bonus. I really like the way the new entries arrive automatically, and all I have to do is respond to the prompt to approve them. Navigation in the new release is intuitive and friendly. Linking directly to DOIs and full text is convenient and makes it easy to access and share my own research.

Elements elegantly connected our multi-university system providing a
single source of truth throughout OIEx.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
