Founded Altmetric in 2011 and ran the company until 2017. He now runs Overton, which focuses on tracking policy related impact, and remains passionate about the way research is communicated online.

Overton is the world’s largest searchable index of policy documents, guidelines, think tank publications and working papers.

It collects data from 182 countries and over a thousand sources worldwide with more being added all the time.

We parse each document, finding references, people and key concepts, and then link them to the relevant news stories, academic research, think tank output and other policy.

Our products allow you to search these documents and see where your ideas, papers, reports and staff are being cited or mentioned.

We can help you to discover where your work may be influencing or changing practice in the real world.
