  • Ends: 2:30 pm on Thursday, January 20, 2022
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 an overview of SciVal, its potential applications, and a practical understanding of how to use the database. The workshop will include practice time to investigate your own topics and ask questions with an expert on hand. Participants will leave this workshop with everything they need to take advantage of this valuable resource to further their work.
