    Digital Science builds powerful and scalable tools to enable communication, collaboration and analytics tools for research. Consisting of 14 small start-up sized companies that each specialise in very specific parts of the research lifecycle, we leverage collaboration between the sub-companies to create integrated and very powerful tools with only 500 employees. Altmetric: Altmetric is the pre-eminent service for discovering where research has been disseminated online and tracks where research outputs such as articles, datasets and other publications receive attention within online news media, blogs, social media platforms, YouTube, Wikipedia, policy documents and citations within patents. In addition to the larger Altmetric Explorer database, a searchable platform of 200 million mentions of research online, data are also available for individual groups and projects for tens or hundreds of publications. Data can be supplied in JSON or CSV, along with some standard visualisations. Altmetric is critical for researchers to provide evidence of dissemination and use of research outside of the much slower and more focused academic citation world.
