About this talk
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”.
