The Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (DOCS) is a self-report instrument that assesses the severity of the four most empirically supported OC symptom dimensions (Contamination, Responsibility, Unacceptable Thoughts, and Symmetry). The aim of this study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the Italian version of the DOCS and address associations with socio-demographical variables, psychometric properties in a community (i.e., non-student) sample, and congruence of factor… 
[Dimensional Approach to Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale with Turkish Psychometric Properties].
TLDR
Positive correlations between DOCS, its sub-scales, and similar OCD scales suggest that the DOCS accurately measures the structures it claims to assess.
The Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale: Development and Validation of a Short Form (DOCS-SF)
TLDR
There is strong evidence for the reliability and validity of the dimensional obsessive-compulsive scale-short form for assessing OCD symptoms in individuals with this condition and in non-clinical individuals.
Discriminative Validity of the Dimensional Obsessive–Compulsive Scale for Separating Obsessive–Compulsive Disorder From Anxiety Disorders
TLDR
At high scores, the Contamination subscale is the most helpful subscale to differentiate OCD and ADs, and for low scores the DOCS-total scale performs the best among the scales.

Objective: To revise the Dimensional Obsessive-compulsive Scale(DOCS) in a Chinese college student sample to find out an empirically justifiable factor structure and explore the distribution
Assessment of obsessive-compulsive symptom dimensions: development and evaluation of the Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale.
TLDR
The authors developed and evaluated a measure called the Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (DOCS) to address limitations of existing OC symptom measures and hold promise as a measure of OC symptoms in clinical and research settings.
The Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory: development and validation of a short version.
TLDR
The revised OCI (OCI-R) improves on the parent version in 3 ways: It eliminates the redundant frequency scale, simplifies the scoring of the subscales, and reduces overlap across subscales.
The Dimensional Yale–Brown Obsessive–Compulsive Scale (DY-BOCS): an instrument for assessing obsessive–compulsive symptom dimensions
TLDR
The results indicate that the DY-BOCS is a reliable and valid instrument for assessing multiple aspects of OCD symptom severity in natural history, neuroimaging, treatment response and genetic studies when administered by expert clinicians or their highly trained staff.
