Import your organizational structures into SciVal

SciVal never sits still, and are constantly making updates to the platform, as well investing in the underlying data computing.

As part of SciVal’s Pascal release, it is now possible to import your hierarchical structures from Pure into SciVal. You are also able to customize, giving unique names and descriptions to your Analyses, in your Reports, we’ve updated the calculation of the h5-index and expanded the SciVal API to support predefined groups of researchers and predefined groups of countries.

SciVal's Pascal release provides greater integration between SciVal and Pure.

Customize your Report names.

Update to h5 metric.

Based upon your feedback, the h5-index metric will be modified to count not only documents, but also citations in the same 5-year time window, which allows true year-on-year comparisons in the Benchmarking module.

We’ve expanded the SciVal API

We are now supporting predefined groups of researchers and predefined groups of countries.

Also please be aware that the SciVal API URL has been updated: it used to be /metrics/ but has changed to /analytics/scival. We will still support /metrics/ for the next few months, but it will eventually be removed. Please ensure you update your API calls accordingly.
