Andreea will also share tips for getting the most of Funding Institutional. While this webinar is intended for current clients of Funding Institutional, we also welcome all those who might be interested to learn more about our future plans.
Where do I have a seat at the table, and in which research areas is our Institution making a significant contribution? What are the latest updates to Topic Prominence in Science, which will save you significant time, provide unique insights and help develop your research strategy?
Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) and Kevin Boyack (President, SciTech Strategies) will take you through some of the latest updates and developments such as:
>> Where am I a Key Contributor? In which Topics is our institution’s research output the most impactful and how is this measured?
>> What are the New Topics? Every year several New Topics are uncovered, we will explain how and why these Topics emerge, and what they imply about future research trends
>> Analyze Related Topics in Trends. Discover related areas of research and broaden your understanding of a chosen Topic.
To provide a robust starting point for your strategic analyses, SciVal allows you to define, profile and investigate your organization based on its structure, as well as your research themes and programs.
Join us on July 12 where we will show you:
>> Tips and tricks to analyze research themes and programs
>> Create your organization's structure to power efficient and consistent reports for all users
>> Gain a full understanding of the research being conducted at your organization and its impact
Metrics are everywhere and understanding how to use them is essential to the effective and responsible use of them. Katy McKen, Head of Research Information at University of Bath and Matt Walker, Senior Customer Consultant will discuss the responsible use of research metrics and their role in decision making processes.
Join us on June 27 where we will discuss:
• The UK landscape and where metrics are already used in universities
• Why it is important to develop a set of principles around responsible use of metrics
• Experience of getting and maintaining senior academic buy-in and support
Learn from the experts, how to use SciVal to analyze and gain insights into your research and knowledge exchange activities globally.
In addition to providing pre-defined profiles and research topics, SciVal also allows you to define, profile and investigate bespoke themes, research teams and collaborative initiatives.
Join us on Wednesday May 23rd where we will show you:
- How to use all modules together to gain a detailed collaboration profile
- How to use Topic Prominence in Science to profile strategic themes
- How to use Research Areas to define, profile and investigate bespoke research topics
- How to use groups of researchers to profile institutes or strategic research programs
Are you making the most the SciVal Reporting functionality? Since its inception in January of last year, and based upon customer feedback we have added many new time-saving capabilities to SciVal Reporting.
For ease of use we have combined the Analyses and Reports into one Library, where you will be able to:
» Set up, re-arrange and edit your unique Analyses
» Share your Reports with other SciVal users at your institution
» Simply drag & drop your Analyses within the Report
» Arrange multiple Reports into folders
» & more!
Join Anne-Sophie Muller, Senior UX Specialist, as she walks you through the latest updates, time-saving tips & tricks, how to make the most of your Reporting library and what's coming up on the roadmap.
Ready access to research data is a cornerstone for success in science. Researchers need to keep track of their data & improve its impact through increased re-use. Universities want to eliminate re-work, showcase research outputs & improve collaboration inside and outside to drive research performance. These needs become more urgent as international funding bodies revise their policies to encourage, or even mandate, institutions and their researchers to make research data available.
In this webinar we will introduce Mendeley Data, a platform designed to facilitate the comprehensive utilization of data. Consisting of five modules, this open, cloud-based platform helps research institutions to manage the entire life-cycle of research data, and enables researchers to safely access and share information wherever they are.
Pure, as one of the leading CRIS (or research information management RIM) systems, has facilitated the emergence of exciting opportunities for research organisations to transform their support for researchers, with many research libraries taking an increasingly important role. Broadly defined, RIM is the aggregation, curation, and utilization of information about institutional research activities, and as such, intersects with many aspects of traditional library services in discovery, acquisition, dissemination, and analysis of scholarly activities.
OCLC Research has been working with members of its international OCLC Research Library Partnership, including the University of St Andrews in Scotland, on a publication to help libraries and other institutional stakeholders to understand developing RIM practices and, in particular, their relevance for service and staff development purposes.
In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the OCLC position paper and provide a case study from the University of St Andrews.
The global scientific community benefits from having a diverse range of perspectives. As such, Russia is working to make its research more visible. In the same way, science in Russia benefits from a diverse range of global collaborators. The willingness of Russian universities to expand these collaborations and foster the excellence of Russian research is supported by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science. Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) is among such universities.
The aim of this webinar to showcase how TPU uses Pure to make university’s research more globally visible and what the impact of the TPU Portal has been.
In this session, Dr. Falkovich will cover:
1)Why TPU research management counts on PURE as it’s research information management system
2)How has international visibility for TPU research improved since the TPU Pure Portal was launched in September 2015 The statistics of Portal visibility as well as case studies of collaborations started with the help of Pure.
This webinar will be helpful for the universities of Western Europe and the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) that have the same challenges and a similar economic and historical background.
Attend this webinar to learn about the key findings of new report produced for the Universities UK by Elsevier in collaboration with Research Consulting, Michael Jubb Consulting and the University of Sheffield. One of the report author’s Andrew Plume will provide a briefing on the report’s key findings, the methodology and data including Elsevier’s Scopus data.
The SciVal API allows you to programmatically retrieve metrics for use in your own software applications.
Join Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) & Joe Riess (Principal Software Engineer) for an introduction to the new SciVal API, what it is, where it can be accessed and how it can be utilized. Joe, who built the SciVal API, will give a demonstration of how you can create a small application using the SciVal API and Scopus APIs together.
An API stands for Application Programming Interface, and it provides a way for programs to talk to one another. The SciVal API gives access to a comprehensive basket of metrics for researchers (Scopus Author profiles) and all 8,500+ institutions available in SciVal.
The API returns data machine-readable format that enables software, rather than humans using the scival.com platform, to use the data. Consequently, this allows developers to write programs that automatically extract metrics from SciVal periodically, and use that data in their Institutional Repository systems, websites and for richer visualizations in tools like Tableau.
