SciVal: How do you compare? Benchmarking and Collaboration (Online)
Team UoN Libraries
This online webinar (delivered via Microsoft Teams) will introduce the Benchmarking and Collaboration module of SciVal.
Researchers or research enabling staff who have some experience with SciVal or have previously attended the ‘Introduction to SciVal’ course.
This session will introduce the Benchmarking and Collaboration module of SciVal. Using benchmarking allows you to compare the research performance of an entity (researcher(s), institution(s), countries etc.) of interest to others. The Collaboration module is useful to identify which institutions are collaborating, this information can be used to scope new potential partnerships on a subject-specific scale.
Participants in the class will learn how to navigate the Benchmarking and Collaboration modules, then learn how to interpret and extract data using some planned case studies.
