New in Scival: grants & mentions in the news.

Scival is an online tool which works with data from Scopus to allow analysis of research in various ways. In the latest release this month they have added funding data (taken directly from the funders) which allows you to compare universities or researchers in terms of the grants they receive. You can look at all the funders covered or select particular ones to compare.

The other main new feature this month is called “Societal impact”. This looks at the number of mentions a university has had in newspapers or online.scival-societal-impact

It doesn’t break this down in any great detail so you might also like to look at altmetrics if you are interested in this area.

More detail in the Scival release notes.
