The UML subscribes to the Dimensions database for the use of students, faculty and staff. Dimensions is a linked research knowledge system with a new approach to discovery and access to research.
To date, few discovery platforms have moved beyond the core publication-citation graph and extended it to explore allied areas of research activity such as awarded grants, patents, and clinical trials. The central theses of the Dimensions database are that: (i) these data are now sufficiently available to make such a database possible with good enough coverage that the results and linkages are interesting; (ii) the combination of these data give a user access to greater context of a piece of research and allow this user to fulfill a significantly wider set of use cases.
