Exploring Related Topics in Trends and see papers published at your ‘home’ institution

The SciVal Ride release is jam-packed with new features and functionalities. You can now explore Related Topics in Trends Discover related areas of research and broaden your understanding of a chosen Topic.

When you analyze a Topic in the Trends module, you can also see the related Topics, matched by keyphrase. Unlike the papers that make up a Topic, Related Topics are not matched by citation relationships and therefore provide a new way to find key institutions and researchers for potential collaboration and learning opportunities.

We have added additional subject classifications.

We have added 3 new subject classifications to SciVal - THE, QS & KAKEN. You will be able to adjust which subject classifications you see, based on your own personal needs.

See only the publications from researchers when published at their 'home' institution.

Currently when you look at a researcher in SciVal you see all of the publications they have in their profile. The new home institution filter allows you to see the actual publications productivity of any researcher whilst they've been affiliated with their ‘home’ institution. This filter will only be active for Researchers and Groups of Researchers.

Topic Prominence Heat map for Groups of Institutions in the Overview module.

The Heat map gives you a quick overview of the Topics which a selection of Institutions are active in. The map is presented in a matrix format, the darker green the box, the more articles the particular Institution has published relating to that Topic. Due to the size of some of the Groups we have added an easy-to-use ‘Navigator’ which allows you to move more easily through the Heat map matrix and we have limited the map to show the top 100 Topics and top 100 institution.
