» 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.
Every year, disasters impact human lives and take a significant economic toll. Science plays a key role in reducing disaster risk and mitigating impact. For the report, A Global Outlook on Disaster Science, Elsevier has partnered with leading international institutions and drew upon high-quality global data including Scopus to examine the state of worldwide disaster science research. Attend this webinar with Elsevier presenters, Anders Karlsson and Basak Candemir to hear the report’s key findings and how it can support policy- and decision- makers at governments and universities on the topic of natural and man-made disasters
The University of Manchester, a member of the UK's Russell Group, implemented Pure in April 2016 and this presentation discusses implementation from the library’s point of view.
In this presentation Scott Taylor, Research Services Librarian, will describe some of the opportunities and challenges that Pure has presented to the University of Manchester Library’s Research Services Division as they aim to achieve the strategic objective of supporting world class research at the University of Manchester.
As the University’s central store of research related data, Pure now underpins most of the Library’s research services across the key activity channels of Open Research, Impact, Identifiers, and Data Stewardship.
This presentation will describe how Pure:
• provides richer analytics enabling new insights into the University’s publication profile
• enables the team to manage the institutional mandate for all researchers to have and provide an ORCID ID
• allows the library to better track the online attention to outputs through the integration with Pure
Scott will also discuss some of the new working relationships across campus that the library has created following the implementation of Pure as well as some of the challenges, including: learning the underlying data model of a new system; getting to grips with some of its features such as the reporting module; and tracking and reporting Open Access funder requirements to a range of stakeholders with differing requirements.
