TRIAL - SciVal

The University of Adelaide is trialing SciVal between January 17 and February 11 2020. All University of Adelaide staff on the University's IP range will be able to access SciVal and test it during that time.

SciVal is a tool that enables you to understand research performance in a number of useful ways. It offers access to information regarding the research performance of research entities including single authors, research institutions, and countries.

SciVal generates research performance metrics by analysing Elsevier's Scopus database, which then facilitates visualisation, benchmarking relative to peers, location of high-performing researchers potentially for the development of collaborative partnerships, and the analysis of research trends.
