A Deeper Dive into SciVal: Data and Metrics
Throughout higher education there is a growing impetus to incorporate data into decision making. One focus is the growing availability of bibliometrics, or the collection and analysis of data about books, articles, and other publications. SciVal, one of the leading sources of bibliometric data for academic institutions, is available for free to all BU faculty and staff. Join Joe Farmer, Data Analyst and Program Manager in the BU Office of Research, for a deeper look into the various metrics and tools available in the SciVal database. The workshop will cover the publication data available for an individual and institution, the use of media and patent information in SciVal, filtering options, and strategies for comparative use of SciVal. This session is primarily intended for users with a basic working knowledge of the SciVal database (available in the Intro to SciVal workshop), but all are welcome to attend.
