  • #SciValFest2020 - Institutional roll-out experiences Recorded: Oct 16 2020 50 mins
    Shaya Abdolahzadeh, University of Groningen & Gráinne McDonagh, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland
    Part 1: Researchers and research institutes are being evaluated nationally by the Standard Evaluation Protocols (SEP) in the Netherlands, and are asked to demonstrate the impact of their research in applications for funding, promotion, or appointments. Research Impact Services (RISe) has been established in response to the need of the University of Groningen research community to have in-depth insights into the positions of the research fields, and to identify important patterns and trends within different research domains. The overall objective of RISe has been to increase research intelligence expertise and foster the competent use of research analytics tools such as SciVal at all levels of the University of Groningen (UG). Our services are offered to a wide range of end users – such as PhD candidates, researchers, group leaders, university policy makers, and faculty-based support teams. In order to establish the role of RISe in assessments of research excellence at both institutional and individual levels, RIse aim to raise awareness and understanding across all disciplines by offering training and support in various areas tailored to the needs of diverse target groups.

    Part 2: The RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences began using SciVal in 2016. The primary users were based in the Library and Institutional Research functions. RCSI has recently established a ‘Research Outputs Ambassador Network’ (ROAN) to engage representatives from across the university in the process of understanding and disseminating metrics and doing so responsibly. This presentation will reflect on the RCSI experience and the impact SciVal has had on institutional planning and performance”.

  • #SciValFest2020 -Analyzing SDGs at Tecnológico de Monterrey and LSE Recorded: Oct 16 2020 45 mins
    Nathalie Galeano, Tecnológico de Monterrey & Nathalie Cornée, LSE
    Part 1: Among the diverse analysis that Scival can support during the development of a research strategy in any university, there are two of them that Tecnologico de Monterrey uses: 1) the analysis of its SDG outputs, and the comparison with peers and 2) the identification of potential areas of collaboration among two universities at the level of research areas and topics. These analysis supports the identification of opportunities areas in the university which can leads into the definition of strategic projects aimed to the development of research capacities and the implementation of collaboration schemes with peers. Use cases of these analysis will be presented during this session.

    Part 2: The project outlines LSE’s wide contribution towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals to demonstrate the value of social sciences to society. Whilst we have a clear contribution to each goal, the analysis will focus on the top five Goals LSE’s research influence and societal influence are the most significant.To gather this data, we used citation analysis tools to estimate the amount of publications we’ve produced towards specific SDGs. Then we identify which topics are prominent, who were our major partners as well as the proportion and characteristics of LSE most-cited papers. The analysis also includes how many LSE publications have been made freely available to society (open access) and how policy makers have engaged with our findings to support the United Nations goals.
  • #SciValFest2020 - KE: How industry uses bibliometrics to inform collaborations Recorded: Oct 16 2020 40 mins
    Malcolm Skingle CBE, PhD - Director of Academic Liaison, GlaxoSmithKline & Dr Lesley Thompson, Elsevier
    Some of the current scientific challenges that we are attempting to solve are so large that we need to engage multi-disciplinary teams across a variety of organisations in order to make progress.

    All technology driven companies will access, at least partly, new innovations and thinking from universities, research institutes and other technology led companies. No single company has the full spectrum of skills and technology required within their organisation to solve complex scientific challenges. How do you choose your collaborating partners?Academic and industrial scientists publish their research in peer reviewed journals and impactful papers may be measured by the number of times that they are cited in other publications. The FWCI rankings give an indication of where certain research groups sit within their respective scientific community; this is true for both academic and industrial scientists.Research has shown that scientific teams who collaborate internationally tend to have more impactful publications; similarly, those academics who collaborate with industrial scientists tend to have a higher FWCI.This presentation will explore this in more depth and give an insight into the criteria that industry use when engaging academic collaborators.

  • Librarian best practices ensure uninterrupted access to research and education Recorded: Aug 13 2020 37 mins
    Emily Singley, Boston College; Naomi Visser, Stellenbosch University
    Librarians play a critical role in ensuring their researchers, students and faculty have access to research and the learning tools they need to be successful.

    The global pandemic has forced educational institutions to close campuses and shift learning and research services to remote options. This shift took many people by surprise, but not to librarians who were already prepared to provide remote access and online resources to their users without disruption. In this webinar, librarians share their best practices on enabling uninterrupted access to research and education.

    Topics covered in this webinar include:

    •Infrastructure readiness – were policies in place for potential university lockdowns or was there a need to provide them?
    •What worked right away and what improvements were made to services that didn’t work out of the box?
    •Communicating and promoting available remote access options to users
    •Challenges to working remotely
    •Showcasing the move to remote online learning

    Presenters:

    Emily Singley, Head of Library Systems, Boston College
    Naomi Visser, E-Resources Librarian, Stellenbosch University
  • Strategies for Securing Early Career Research Funding Recorded: Jul 15 2020 59 mins
    Melodi Moore, University of Texas Galveston; Cristal P. Sanchez, Texas Tech; and Linda Galloway, Elsevier
    As they progress from being students to independent scholars, early-career researchers face challenges from high workloads and long hours, “publish or perish” pressures, tenure track requirements, administrative workloads and decreasing grant proposal success rates. Since 1982, NIH grants to principal investigators under the age of 46 have dropped steadily, per research published in 2017 by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. This trend has dire impacts not only for basic research but also for science as a profession in the US. Multiple studies show that researchers’ future funding can depend on whether or not they had early-career grant success early in their careers; moreover, research also shows that early-career grant-winners were also 50% more likely to become a professor than were the ones who failed to qualify.

    Join us for a webinar to share services, solutions and strategies supporting early-career researchers’ discovery of funding opportunities—how to find them, and how to maximize proposal success.
