Introduction to SciVal Research Division Leaders
November 5, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Who is it for?
Research Division Leaders
Brief description of course:
SciVal is a powerful research intelligence tool based on bibliometric data from research publications. SciVal enables researchers and those supporting research staff to visualize their institution/group’s research performance and benchmark it relative to their peers based on a variety of different metrics. It can also help you identify areas or partners for the development of collaborative networks. This session will introduce you to the scope and possibilities of SciVal and show you how to perform targeted analyses based on the publications of your own research division. This is a 90 minute session. The first 60 minutes will explain what the tool is and how it can be used. The last 30 minutes will be an extended hands-on activity so that you get practical experience of using the tool.
Following the session you will be able to:
Track the impact of your division’s research outputs
Perform targeted analyses based on the publications of your own research division
Select suitable institutions/groups for benchmarking
Identify potential collaborators
