Trial access to Video material from Sage

We have trial access to SAGE Video, online video collections in the social sciences. SAGE’s video collections combine originally commissioned material with licensed videos in the following disciplines:

SAGE Video offers quick definitions, short tutorials and in-depth interviews for a range of academic viewpoints. It also features extensive footage of practitioners in real-life professional settings designed to illustrate best practice and provide a unique insight for students to master the theory, skills and techniques needed to succeed.

The trial runs until 1st March 2018. Please send your feedback to blslibrarians@cardiff.ac.uk

Research publications performance : Topic Prominence feature in Scival

The SciVal database for analysis of the citations performance of research publications has added a new feature: Topic Prominence in Science. This feature is intended to help with identifying new, emerging research trends. You can browse and search areas where Cardiff University, or any other research university, has research strengths, based on publications clustered through shared citations.

Topics are given a Prominence Profile Score to indicate the momentum of the topic, based on three metrics: Citation Count in year 2016 to papers published in 2016 and 2015; Scopus Views Count in year 2016 to papers published in 2016 and 2015; Average CiteScore in year 2016 (CiteScore is a journal ranking measure). For each topic, you are also given various indicators, including: the share of the institution in that topic’s publications; the Field Weighted Citation Impact; citations per publication. Also included in the analysis is a list of authors and institutions who are publishing in that topic.

For further information , you can see Elsevier’s slides at https://www.elsevier.com/__data/assets/pdf_file/0010/519859/BrightTALK-deck.pdf or view a webinar at https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/13819/281741 .
