Get instant performance snapshots of your Publication Sets

It is now possible to get instant performance snapshots of your Publication Sets in the Overview module, then dive deeper to see the top performing authors and intuitions for potential recruitment, retention and collaboration strategies.

Get instant performance snapshots of your Publication Sets

  • Get at a glance performance indicators for your chosen Publication Set
  • Analyze further to see the impact of these documents with indicators such as Output in Top Percentiles, Field-Weighted Citation Impact and International Collaboration.
  • Get deeper insights from your Scopus search results with SciVal - perform a basic analysis on a specific set of publications in Scopus, then seamlessly transfer those publications to SciVal as a Publication Set for deeper analysis.

Effortlessly share multiple research entities with one or more of your peers

Create any entity once, such as a researcher, a group of researchers, a Publication Set or Research Area, then easily share them with any groups or individuals within your institution.

Effortlessly share your research entities with one or more of your peers

  • Provides an instant analysis starting point for your colleagues
  • Quickly share with your team and other key contacts - enhanced sharing options allows you to easily set up and maintain invitation lists
  • Save time for key research administrators - Delegate entity creation and distribution rights to support staff

Easily create and share reports in SciVal

Reports can be easily created and shared with the new print and PDF save options. Greater flexibility for further analyses is possible through the addition of an export facility in the Trends module and increased export fields for publication lists.

Easily create and share reports in SciVal

  • 11 additional fields have been added to allow more in-depth analysis outside of SciVal. i.e. you can now remove papers with large numbers of authors from your analysis. Simply select the “Number of Authors” field and filter out the high numbers using Excel.

Additional enhancements

  • Easily view the performance of your institution or peers in any Scopus journal classification – the 334 Scopus journal classifications have been converted into Research Areas and can be analyzed in the Overview and Benchmarking modules, or used as a benchmark against your research
  • Identify researchers more accurately in SciVal’s author lists through the display of the full first and last names – especially useful in Asia where similar surnames are common. i.e. Wang
  • Improved usability of the researcher define process and researchers made more discoverable in My SciVal through tagging
  • A back-up map provider in the Collaboration and Trends modules ensures that our map facilities are available even if Google Maps are inaccessible.
