Dimensions is a next generation linked research information system from Digital Science. This link takes you to the freely available version where you can search for research publications, citations, altmetric data and datasets derived from Figshare, Dryad, Zenodo, Pangaea etc. Depending on the needs of your literature review Dimensions may be a useful search source alongside other bibliographic databases provided by UEA Library.
Please note-UEA Library does not subscribe to Dimensions Plus, the full version of this database, (that contains data about grants, patents, clinical trials and policy documents).
SciVal is a web-based analytics system specifically developed for research data.
