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.
