Overton at Bibliometrics and Research Assessment Symposium 2020

We're looking forward to being part of a panel discussion on Altmetrics at this year's Bibliometrics and Research Assessment Symposium, organised by the NIH Library.

We'll be chatting about the links between scholarly and policy citation networks and showing some baseline stats using Overton's policy document database.

Here is a sneak peek at some of the data we'll be presenting. (*This is an undercount as we're only looking for other documents indexed by Overton.)

Looking forward to catching up with colleagues and hearing about the innovations in bibliometrics and research impact!

What is Overton

We help universities, think tanks and publishers understand the reach and influence of their research.

The Overton platform contains is the world’s largest searchable policy database, with almost 5 million documents from 29k organisations.

We track everything from white papers to think tank policy briefs to national clinical guidelines, and automatically find the references to scholarly research, academics and other outputs.
