Introduction to the SciVal Research Intelligence Tool

October 19, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Who is it for?

All staff involved in conducting, supporting or monitoring research outputs

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. 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. If you do not want to take part in this activity, please feel free to leave the session after 60 minutes.

Following the session you will be able to:

  • Understand what the tool is for and the data behind it.
  • 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.
