New field-weighted metrics allow cross-discipline comparisons

It is now possible to compare Outputs in Top Percentiles and Collaboration metrics across subject disciplines. The new field-weighted outputs in top percentiles and field-weighted collaboration metrics give users the ability to, for example, compare the results of a group of researchers to that of an institution for benchmarking purposes.

The release also sees the addition of the Impact Per Publication (IPP). The metric to measures the ratio of citations per article published in journals is now available in SciVal. The option to select IPP can be found as an option along with SNIP and SJR in any of the Publications in Top Journal Percentiles metrics.


  • Check the tick-box to show the metric as field-weighted
  • The Field-weighted Outputs in Top Percentiles metric show the share of publications that are the most cited publications worldwide
  • The Field-weighted Collaboration metric shows the amount of international, national and institutional co-authorship for the entity you are analyzing

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

We’ve simplified how you share multiple entities. Create multiple entities once, such as a researcher, a group of researchers, a Publication Set or Research Area, then in a few clicks share them simultaneously with groups or individuals within your institution.
