Interested in bibliometric analysis? SciVal training, Tue 3rd Feb, in the library

Bibliometric analysis has become increasingly important in evaluations of the research impact of individuals or institutions (such as the REF). SciVal, which uses data from the Scopus database (used for REF2014), is one of the tools that gathers and analyses this kind of bibliometric data. Within SciVal it is possible to analyse and benchmark individual researchers, groups of researchers and institutions based on a variety of different metrics.

Swansea University library is hosting a training session by Dr Matthew Walker from Elsevier on their SciVal database on Tuesday 3rd February, 11.30-1pm. This will be an overview session for new or returning users that will cover:

– An overview of SciVal
– A practical hands-on introduction to using SciVal

The session will be held in Training Room 2 in the library and is open to staff and research students. Please sign up on our Eventbrite page if you would like to attend: https://eventbrite.com/event/15350794640/
