Dimensions is a freely available research database that indexes outputs including publications and datasets.
Access to Dimensions is free. A further paid subscription level is available that provides further data about grants, patents and clinical trials: Please note that the University of Bolton does not have access to this paid institutional level of Dimensions.
Dimensions enables you to explore publications and datasets, and find connections between research outputs.
Depending on the needs of your literature review, Dimensions may be a useful search source alongside other Library databases and Discover@Bolton.
Dimensions has particularly useful tools to explore research in relation to sustainability.
Explore a range of use cases on the Dimensions website, including identifying experts, horizon scanning for new technologies and evaluating the impact of an institution's researchers.
