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. You can also analyse publication sets you have created, for example from a search in Scopus or from an ORCA list.
