Clarivate opens up research data access for DACH scientists

Research intelligence specialist Clarivate is now working with Open Access (OA) Monitor in Germany to deliver customised scientific data to customers across the DACH region.

Jerre Stead, CEO and executive chairman at Clarivate said the move would assist the process of scientific discovery by helping researchers embracing open, transparent research practices.

“We seek to help the research community in the DACH region and beyond make better informed, data-driven decisions on open research policy and strategy,” he said in the announcement.

The arrangement broadens access to trusted data feeds that support researchers across Germany, Austria and Switzerland, by providing them with tailored weekly data from Clarivate’s Web of Science publication, grant and funding data.

Clarivate claims to be the first company to have provided easy access to peer-reviewed OA articles by embedding OA data into its citation index. Currently, there are some 12 million articles with OA versions in the Web of Science research intelligence platform.

“Its publisher-neutral approach offers the best combination of robust OA data and careful editorial curation, as it remains the only citation database that comprehensively covers editorially controlled, peer-reviewed and versioned open research,” according to the Clarivate announcement.

In August, the company launched a coronavirus, virology and infections disease data lake to support global researchers and policy makers in their fight against Covid-19.

Ken McLaren, senior vice president and general manager of data analytics and insights at Clarivate, said: “A unified data set allows for more complex analyses and improved insights not efficiently available through disparate, siloed databases.”

Clarivate has just completed, in addition, its acquisition of CPA Global in a deal which will offer thousands of legal firms and corporate customers a broader range of intelligence on intellectual property for patent and trademark research.

The software vendor is set to report its Q3 2020 financial results on 29 October, with a webcast via this link and afterwards hosted on its investor relations webpage.
