This introductory session to the SciVal database shows you how to track research publications performance, identify institutional strengths and compare Cardiff University to peers around the world. You can analyse citations by team, department or institution, compare outputs with other institutions and analyse collaboration data. SciVal draws citation data from Scopus to provide several different metrics for any grouping of people or publications. The data can be filtered by more than 330 journal subject categories.

Citations Count! Understanding and tracking your citations- training session for researchers 26 April 2017, 14:00-15:30
Citations and related bibliometric data are now a part of REF for a number of subject areas and are included in a range of measures that are widely used to compare research performance. This is an introductory session covering: what is bibliometric data and what is it used for; how to find and evaluate it; and techniques and resources to track your own citations. We will look at managing your research identity, in particular the role of ORCID and Scopus author profiles. Participants will also be given a workbook with examples and databases to explore.
