Track the influence of your research on real world policy
Overton collects millions of policy documents and links them to the research, people and other policy documents that they quote or reference. You can quickly see where research you have funded is being used in policy and identify opportunities for future research.
We’re the world’s largest searchable policy database, typically returning 3x more data than similar products – we’re especially strong in the social sciences and clinical and translational medicine.
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. We look for the names of any researchers on expert panels, who are quoted in policy documents, who give evidence to committee hearings and more.
Importantly we also find the links between policy documents – often research is picked up by intermediaries like think tanks and agencies – giving you unparalleled insight into how your research is being used by policymakers worldwide.
We offer a fully featured 30 day trial of Overton so that you can explore the data for yourself and see what's possible. Fill in the form below and we'll get you set up.
