Topics of Prominence - Methodology and Practical Usage
熱門研究主題方法與實際應用

Dr. Kevin Boyack
President of SciTech Strategies

This talk will review the methodology behind the identification of topics and calculation of topic prominence, and will also explain the new "key contributors" feature. We will then explore several examples of how topics can be used to answer specific questions. Examples will include how to identify the most prominent topics for an institution and its competitiveness in those topics, how to identify topics related to a new capability that an institution may want to enter, and how a researcher can identify the topics in a personal research portfolios or explore topics of interest. We also hope to explore research questions of interest to audience members.  

本演講將檢視 prominence 指標如何辨識研究主題與理論方法,並說明新的 key contributors 功能。我們將透過一些例子來示範如何使用研究主題來回答特定問題。例如:如何辨識機構中最顯著的研究主題,以及在這些主題上的競爭力、如何確定機構可能想要進入的新研究領域相關的主題,以及研究人員如何了解個人研究著作中的主題或探索其感興趣的主題。我們也希望能探索今天參加者所感興趣的研究問題。

How UNSW leverages SciVal to Enable Research Excellence and Align Strategic Initiatives with the University’s Goals
澳洲新南威爾士大學如何利用 SciVal 實現卓越的研究,並使策略與大學的目標保持一致 

Thomas Chow
Director, Research Analysis, Data and Reporting
University of New South Wales (UNSW) Sydney

澳洲雪梨新南威爾士大學

Never has there been a more pressing need for universities and academics to understand and measure research excellence. In recent times, the variety and quantity of research metrics has grown, and along with it their utilisation and accessibility in the global research community via online databases. These metrics are commonly used by funding agencies, rankings organisations, and internally by many universities as one of the indicators to gauge performance. UNSW believes it is imperative that university executives and researchers alike are equipped with the right data at the right time to make the right decisions, and has addressed this by embedding the use of SciVal to actively build a culture that understands metrics, using both a top down and bottom up approach.

This presentation will cover UNSW’s use of SciVal metrics as indicators of research quality and the approach to engaging researchers of all disciplines across the university. Insights will be shared regarding key lessons learned during the journey and benefits that have already been realised.  

大學與學術界從未迫切的需要了解和衡量卓越研究。近年來,研究指標的種類和數量不斷增加,並且隨之而來的是全球學術界需透過線上資料庫的使用和取得。這些指標通常由資助機構、排名組織和許多大學內部使用,以作為衡量表現的指標之一。新南威爾士大學認為,大學的主管與研究人員必須在適當的時間利用正確的數據以做出正確的決策,並透過深入使用 SciVal 的方式,積極建立並同時以由上而下和由下而上的做法來了解指標。

本演講涵蓋新南威爾士大學如何使用 SciVal 指標作為研究質量的指標,並讓整個大學所有學科的研究人員一起參與,並將分享過程中獲得的經驗以及實際帶來的益處。

How Taipei Tech is Using Research Analytics to Plan for International Success
國立臺北科技大學如何利用研究分析成功邁向國際

Chaochin Su 蘇昭瑾教授
Professor and Director of Research and Development Office, National Taipei University of Technology
國立臺北科技大學研發長

Taiwan government launched the New Southbound Policy and Higher Education plan, designed to metric how universities evaluate their research performance and international competitiveness. Both initiatives assess research strengths and future positioning amongst world universities. They allow Taiwan universities to develop their own performance indicators, giving priority to research development by proposing strategies to promote and strengthen their international research collaboration programs. This presentation will demonstrate how Taipei Tech is using Scopus and SciVal to benchmark its research strengths, boost international collaboration and foster University-Industry Collaboration. The ultimate goal is to propel a research institution from a local technical university to an internationally renowned university of technology.

台灣政府推出了新的南向政策和高教深根計畫,旨在衡量大學如何評估其研究績效和國際競爭力。 這兩項計畫都評估了世界大學的研究優勢和未來定位,也都希望台灣學校制定自己的績效指標,優先考慮研究發展,並透過宣傳和加強國際研究合作計畫策略。本演講將說明北科如何利用 Scopus 和 SciVal 來衡量其研究優勢、促進國際合作並促進大學與產業合作。最終目標是將國立臺北科技大學推向國際知名的科技大學。

What is Topic Prominence?  什麼是熱門研究主題

SciVal can show which Topics your institution is currently active in, and which Topics have high momentum– those therefore more likely to be well-funded.  Prominence is a new indicator that shows the current momentum of a Topic by looking at very recent citations, views and CiteScore values. Topics of Prominence are available for an institution, as single topic, a researcher or group of researchers.

SciVal 可以顯示您所在機構當前活躍的研究主題,以及哪些研究主題為未來研究趨勢 - 因此更有可能獲得充足的資金支持。Prominence 是一個新的指標,透過引用次數、瀏覽和期刊影響指標來了解該研究主題在全球的熱門程度。Prominence 可用於查詢單一機構、單一研究主題、研究人員或一群研究人員。

Research Managers 研究管理者

Trying to stay abreast of the latest research trends? Topic Prominence in Science helps answer the following:
試圖了解最新的研究趨勢?Prominence 有助於回答以下問題:

  • What are the pockets of well-funded research in our current research portfolio? 在我們目前的研究著作中有哪些是資金充足的研究?
  • How can we show that our institution is very active and leading the way in a research field which has a lot of momentum?  怎樣才能證明我們的機構非常活躍並且在未來研究趨勢的研究領域中處於領先地位?
  • Which forward-momentum Topics are our peers and competitors currently active in?  哪些將為未來研究趨勢是我們的同行和競爭對手目前活躍的研究主題?
  • Who are the top-performing researchers and upcoming talent active in those particular research Topics?  誰是表現最好的研究人員和即將在這些特定研究主題中活躍的新興人才?
