New SciVal Trends module is released (with webinar)

on Wed, 02/25/2015 - 10:47

Offering quick and easy access to the research performance of 4,600 research institutions and 220 countries worldwide, SciVal provides unparalleled flexibility to define and create your own research areas. By enabling deeper analysis of these research areas, the new Trends module now allows you to spot research trends, discover top-performing countries, institutions, authors and journals, and compare them to the performance of your own research groups.

In addition to the regular citation and publication metrics in SciVal, the new Trends module incorporates usage data from ScienceDirect and Scopus. This data complements traditional citation metrics by exposing reading patterns, which can give an earlier indication of the popularity of research and help identify the rising stars of a specific topic. With the combination of publication and usage data along with SciVal's powerful analytic engine, the Trends module aims to help users answer the enormously diverse questions they face in the management and practice of research.

Elsevier hosted two webinars on February 26 to demonstrate the new SciVal Trends module and introduce the inclusion of usage metrics in SciVal.
