Two announcements today. Highlights from both + links below.
Dimensions is introducing the beta of a new AI Assistant to enhance the user experience, with the research community playing a critical role in ensuring our AI delivers what they need.
Dimensions AI Assistant utilizes advanced artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to provide users with semantically rich summaries and contextualized results, surpassing traditional keyword-based searches.
To ensure that Dimensions AI Assistant meets the needs of its target audience, is inviting a limited number of beta testers globally to actively participate in shaping how AI will support Dimensions users in the future. These users will be based in various sectors, including academia, corporations, publishers, government agencies, and funding organizations – representing Digital Science’s key client base.
The main objective in releasing the closed beta of Dimensions AI Assistant is to gather valuable feedback from beta testers representing various segments, including academics, corporate entities, publishers, government agencies, and funding organizations. This approach ensures that user needs and interactions are given utmost importance as the app’s functionality continues to be developed. “By prioritizing the beta launch as an essential step, we aim to refine the product and ensure that it aligns with the expectations and requirements of its target audience,” says Christian Bode, Head of Product, Dimensions.
This beta launch of Dimensions AI Assistant will be the first step in developing additional AI helpers. The feedback is meant to be a guide to explore opportunities to integrate Dimensions AI Assistant into Dimensions Analytics.

Elsevier today releases an alpha version of Scopus AI for researcher testing – a next generation tool that combines generative AI with Scopus’ trusted content and data to help researchers get deeper insights faster, support collaboration and societal impact of research.
Scopus AI provides easy-to-read topic summaries based on trusted content from over 27,000 academic journals, from more than 7,000 publishers worldwide, with over 1.8 billion citations, and includes over 17 million author profiles. Content is rigorously vetted and selected by an independent review board, that is made up of 17 world-renowned scientists, researchers and librarians who represent the major scientific disciplines. Researchers can quickly dig deeper and explore these topics in several ways, including suggested follow-up questions and links to the original research. Powered by generative AI and LLM technology in combination with Scopus’s existing powerful search capabilities, Scopus AI will help early-career researchers and seasoned academics alike through:
- Summarized views based on Scopus abstracts: Researchers obtain a concise and trustworthy snapshot of any research topic, complete with academic references, reducing lengthy reading time and the risk of hallucinations.
- Easy navigation to “Go Deeper Links” for extended exploration: Scopus AI provides relevant queries for further exploration, leading to hidden insights in various research topics.
- Natural language queries: Researchers can ask questions about a subject in a natural, conversational manner.
- A soon-to-be-added graphical representation, offering new perspectives of interconnected research themes: Scopus AI visually maps search results, offering a comprehensive overview that allows researchers to navigate complex relationships easily.
