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 2 training sessions by Dr Matthew Walker from Elsevier on their SciVal database on Wednesday 18th March. There will be an overview session for new users at 9.30am and an intermediate session for those who have already used Scival at 11am.
The sessions are open to staff and research students. Please sign up on our Eventbrite page if you would like to attend:
