Advanced Topic search to aid discoverability

It will now be faster and easier to find Topics of interest, thanks to a more sophisticated search functionality.

Webinar: Spurring Innovation with Topic Prominence at Arizona State University

Join us for this webinar on Thursday 26 June to understand how you can make the most of the latest improvements to Topic Prominence in Science. Learn first-hand how a core SciVal user, Hansa Magee from Arizona State University, has been applying Topics to her work.

Find Topics faster!

To help increase the visibility of the Topics and Topic Clusters, you can now search over the current names, plus the top 15 keyphrases.

Tip: A search for wind turbine finds the words together and separately and any variations i.e. wind/winds/windy. A search with speech marks finds an exact match, i.e. “wind turbine” will only find wind turbine as one keyphrase and nothing else.

Improved Reporting navigation

We've made a number of enhancements within Reporting to help researchers navigate to relevant analyses. A scrollable content page when previewing a report, along with direct links from an analysis in a report to the correct module in SciVal will all help researchers find the analyses in SciVal faster.
Additional enhancements:

  • You can now also add analyses about an individual country, author or Scopus source from the Trends module to Reporting.
  • You can limit the number of authors added to a PDF report to top 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 or 500 (the Excel version will always contain the top 500)

What else is new?

  • Publication Sets - Import up to 50k documents. To help when creating large Publication Sets, we've increased the limit when importing document IDs to define one from 20k to 50k. Note: The maximum size of a Publication Set is still 100k and the limit from Scopus is still 20k.
  • Improved publication links export. You can now select the ASJC codes, along with the related names as a separate field when exporting publication lists.
