Examining Implications of Brexit for the UK Research Base

Digital Science, Martin Szomszor & Daniel Hook
Independent data research by Digital Science reveals that leading British institutions and companies, including the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, Rolls-Royce, BT and the BBC, could stand to lose significant EU funding for R&D if the UK government doesn’t plug the gap.

Digital Research Report: The Implications of International Research Collaboration for UK Universities

Digital Science & Tamar Loach
Digital Science reports in collaboration with the International Unit at Universities UK (UUK) on the significance of international academic collaboration across the UK research base.
The report focuses on the implications of EU and global collaboration for universities, research assessment and the economy. International collaboration is increasingly prevalent, accounting for more than half of the UK’s annual research output across UK universities; this is associated with increased citation impact.
The main findings of the report...

Digital Science White Paper: A New ‘Research Data Mechanics’

Digital Science & Simon Porter
Research metadata forms the information network that connects researchers, research institutions, funders, publishers, and research service providers together. How well information flows across this community has direct implications on how well research activity can be supported, and fundamentally how efficiently we can move research forward. Through highlighting six recent advances in research infrastructure, this whitepaper seeks to recast how we think about metadata - not as a series of static records, but as objects that...

Arctic Research Publications: Scholarly Output Trends Using the Russian Index of Scientific Citations. A Working Paper

Dr. Olga V. Moskaleva, Dr. Igor A. Osipov, Dr. Gennady Eremenko, Dr. Diane Hirshberg, Dr. Lars Kullerud, Giles Radford & Christian Herzog
UArctic recently collaborated with ÜberResearch to produce a report entitled “International Arctic Research: Analyzing Global Funding Trends - A Pilot Report”.The nature of the Dimensions database means that that analysis was based upon project funding data. This working paper undertakes a preliminary analysis of how a similar approach could be used with a publications database, utilising the Russian Index of Scientific Citations (RISC) data.

International Arctic Research: Analyzing Global Funding Trends. A Pilot Report

Dr. Igor A. Osipov, Giles Radford, Dr. Dag W. Aksnes, Lars Kullerud, Dr. Diane Hirshberg, Dr. Peter Skold, Dr. Kirsi Latola, Dr. Olga V. Moskaleva & Aaron A. Sorensen
This pilot analysis is the result of an exploratory collaboration between the UArctic Science & Research Analytics Task Force and Digital Science's international research teams. The aim was to assess the global funding landscape around Arctic-related research for the decade spanning 2006 to 2015 using the funding data from the Dimensions dataset, which includes information from over 200 funders on more than 2,500,000 projects with funding totalling $1 trillion+ (in US Dollars). This project is...

Arctic Altmetrics: Alternative Perspectives on the Impact of Arctic Research. A Working Paper

Dr. Igor A. Osipov, Dr. Dag W. Aksnes, Dr. Lars Kullerud, Giles Radford, Dr. Diane Hirshberg, Katherine Christian, Euan Adie, Jean Liu & Aaron A. Sorensen
There exist a significant number of information sources, apart from the scientific literature, with which to assess the social impact (not to be confused with “societal impact”) of the findings produced by Arctic researchers and institutions. Various policy documents, online news and media publications, white papers, tweets, and Facebook posts provide additional data points to help assess the reach and potential impact of publicly funded research, including Arctic research. In this working paper, we provide...

Digital Research Report: Interdisciplinary Research - Methodologies for Identification and Assessment

Digital Science, Jonathan Adams, Tamar Loach & Martin Szomszor
The objective of the study behind this report was to compare the consistency of indicators of ‘interdisciplinarity’ and to identify a preferred methodology. The outcomes reveal that choice of data, methodology and indicators can produce seriously inconsistent results despite a common set of disciplines and countries.

This raises questions about how interdisciplinarity is identified and assessed. It reveals a disconnect between the research metadata analysts typically use and the research activity they assume they have analysed....

Digital Research Report: The Landscape of Climate Research Funding

Digital Science, Daniel Hook, Jonathan Adams, Martin Szomszor & Dimensions Support Team
The USA government proposes policy and funding changes around environmental protection and climate research. As is often the case, it will be difficult to assess the impact until years after the policy has been enacted. However, funding data provide us with a more proximate bellwether than the traditional research analytics. In this report, we profile the balance of ‘climate research’ investment and note its impact on a diverse research portfolio that runs from ecology and...
