A special note for librarians at SciVal institutions: You can now can use Scopus to create a Publication Set to export and analyze in SciVal. See more information below.

Research Dataset Linking

Research dataset links can now be found on the Scopus Document details page. Through collaboration with Data Literature Interlinking (DLI) service and Scholix, Scopus is able to link articles with datasets when available on the external data repository.

Here’s how to find research datasets on Scopus:

Elsevier is bringing the SciVal and Scopus community together for knowledge sharing and networking

on Tue, 03/21/2017 - 17:13

Elsevier is bringing the SciVal and Scopus community together for two days of updates, knowledge sharing and networking. The inaugural SciVal and Scopus European User Conference is taking place in the majestic city of Amsterdam at the EYE Film Institute. This event is free to attend for SciVal and Scopus users from European academic institutions and corporates. More specifically, research managers, librarians and research leaders are invited to attend for what promises to be a highly informative and engaging program.

At the conference we will be running workshops and plenary sessions on various topics, which will touch on the evolving expectations, available solutions, measurements, and best practices associated with the optimization of planning and executing a research strategy.

Research Intelligence Case Studies: A look into the challenges universities overcome using Scopus, SciVal and Pure

Over the past year, Elsevier’s Research Intelligence team interviewed dozens of research leaders from around the world to capture their stories about the challenges their institutions face and how they are able to overcome them using Scopus, SciVal and Pure. Whether it’s speaking to a customer from Australia who is using Pure to help support their National Assessment exercise, or a young, ambitious university in Taiwan looking to make a jump in the Times Higher Education rankings by using Scopus and SciVal, we’re learning firsthand how Elsevier’s Research Intelligence solutions are helping research leaders succeed in their roles and help shape their institutions’ strategies.


Kirsty Collinge from Heriot-Watt University talks about SciVal during an interview at the SciVal UK User Group Meeting at the University of Bath.

We have recently added a few of these new customer stories to the growing Research

Last year, we introduced a library of video and written case studies in which university leaders from around the world share how they are using Scopus, SciVal and Pure to answer pressing challenges faced by their researchers and research managers.

Now added to the library are three new videos featuring university leaders in Taiwan. In their own words, hear about the role Scopus and SciVal play in shaping research strategies, improving rankings with THE and QS, and facilitating international collaboration for their institutions:

Why the National Science Foundation (NSF) chose Scopus data for the Science & Engineering Indicators report

on Wed, 05/18/2016 - 17:15

Every 2 years, the National Science Foundation (NSF) releases its Science & Engineering Indicators report, widely acknowledged as the definitive source of information on US

research trends. This report is mandated by the US Congress and although it is policy neutral and does not make recommendations, the information and trends revealed help guide policy makers and influence strategic planning and benchmarking for universities and state governments.

This year the NSF chose a new data provider for the report, Scopus. Why Scopus? The answer can be found in the report itself, “[a]lthough the United States has dominated S&E [Science & Engineering] publication activity for decades, it has long been hypothesized that…the developing world would…eventually reach parity with the United States (Price 1963). Tracking this growth accurately requires broad global coverage of S&E publications.” Scopus meets that need for broader global coverage, and with

Celebrating Earth Day: SciVal and Scopus investigate

on Fri, 04/22/2016 - 15:56

Today, April 22nd is Earth Day and we celebrate this day with a joint SciVal and Scopus infographic. Now in its 46th year, Earth Day aims to promote a healthy, sustainable environment, address climate change and protect the Earth for future generations.

In 2015, Elsevier’s Analytical Services team in collaboration with SciDev.Net wrote a report about the global research landscape that surrounds the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainability in Science report focused on 6 key themes, one of which was the “Planet”. In celebration of Earth Day, we used the same search terms for the “Planet” theme in both SciVal and Scopus to take a look at the researchers, institutions and countries working in sustainability science.

Webinar: SciVal economic indicators with guest speakers from Queensland University & Penn State

on Tue, 03/08/2016 - 18:48

"Patent citation metrics extends SciVal beyond scholarly output — they create a link between research and economic or commercial potential"  -- Michelle Hutnik, Penn State University

 

With the February 25th release, SciVal introduced new data types to help assess the economic impact of your research and provide a broader basket of metrics for more informed decision making. The new data types include:

  • Patent-article citations which provide a proxy for innovation and the potential to transfer that knowledge to industry
  • Scopus view counts now available in all modules to give you an immediate indication regarding the popularity of your research

Join the SciVal team, along with guest speakers from the University of Queensland and Penn State University, for an interactive webinar.

Webinar: How Unilever uses SciVal to help accelerate innovation

on Wed, 02/17/2016 - 19:14

“Scopus helps us do more “E-Science” – scientific investigation that can be undertaken more effectively, less expensively, and without having to perform work in the lab that has already been done by others or that isn’t likely to produce relevant outcomes.”

— David Younghusband, Information Systems Specialist, Unilever R&D

The Unilever Information Team uses SciVal, which is underpinned by Scopus data, to help accelerate innovation and boost competitiveness. The advanced analytics and supercomputer technology of SciVal allows them to build a variety of perspectives into research performance and address such challenges as:

  • Finding technology partners
  • Measuring against the competition
  • Identifying emerging technology areas.  

The SciVal team invites you to join an interactive webinar in which the Unilever information team will share how SciVal helps them to solve these challenges.

Celebrating Valentine’s Day: SciVal and Scopus investigate Cupid’s Chemicals

on Sat, 02/13/2016 - 19:22

Valentine’s Day has evolved into a celebration of one of the strongest of human emotions, romantic love. The visible signs of love can be obvious to spot, from a racing pulse to flushed cheeks, but it appears that Cupid is not working alone.

According to one of the best-known researchers on the topic, Dr. Helen Fisher, Senior Research Fellow, at The Kinsey Institute, Indiana University, and a Member of the Center For Human Evolutionary Studies in the Department of Anthropology at Rutgers University, when it comes to love, we are at the mercy of our biochemistry. Fisher concludes that each of the three stages of falling in love are aided by different set of hormones.

Using Scopus and SciVal, we have investigated the chemicals related to each stage of love to see the people, papers and journals behind the ‘Science of Love.’ #CupidsChemicals
