Change your view on the world. New heatmaps to visualize your global research collaborations.

Named for the Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist, SciVal's Tesla release provides a revamped map to better visualize research collaborations, enhancement to the import researcher flow and the much sought after, ability to build Research Areas from Topics.

Redesigned Collaboration Map

The Collaboration module is being redesigned, you can now get a quick overview of the regions and countries which you are co-authoring most prolifically with via our heatmap – the darker green a country the more you currently collaborate with them. We have also highlighted the top 10 institutions worldwide by co-authored publications.

Looking for potential collaborators? The darker purple the countries on the heatmap the more potential collaborating institutions present.

Enhanced flow to add Researchers

Easily create, modify and update your organizational hierarchy in SciVal using a master spreadsheet. You will be able to add Researchers to existing Groups of Researchers, synchronizing new files with your Researchers and Groups in My SciVal.

Webinar: Importing Researchers & Creating your Hierarchies in SciVal

SciVal gives you the flexibility to analyze any researcher or group of researchers from any institution, create groups or even recreate your institution’s complete hierarchy with a few easy steps.

Build Research Areas from Topics

Combine Topics together to form a Research Area unique to your institution or departments, then analyze it to find out the top researchers and rising stars.

Further Reporting enhancements

You can now add table analyses from the Collaboration module to Reporting. Adding these Analyses to your next Report allows you to highlight which other Institutions are you collaborating with, the number of publications and the Field-Weight Citation Impact (FWCI) of those collaborations. Alternatively, you can quickly gather a list of institutions which you have yet to collaborate with.
