Employing APIs to create powerful data visualizations

Presented by

Bill Mischo (Berthold Family Professor in Information Discovery, UIUC Library) and Matt DiRenzo (Elsevier, Product Manager)

About this talk

Bill Mischo, Head of the Grainger Engineering Library Information Center, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, shows how he employed a combination of Scopus APIs to generate research impact visualizations to support strategic planning in the College of Engineering’s new engineering-based college of medicine. The custom databases and visualizations showcase the research impact of various units or groups– for grant applications, program review, and other research assessments. It also allows individual researchers to visualize their research network. Matt DiRenzo (Scopus APIs Product Manager) will discuss some of the basic (and more complex) use cases of the Scopus APIs and their advantages when compared to downloading data from the scopus.com platform.
