Research Impact Factors

World rankings

SciVal
SciVal is an Elsevier product that allows analysis of an institution's overall research performance, comparison of research performance between institutions, countries, and groups. Users can identify and analyse existing and potential collaboration opportunities based on publication output and citation impact. Information provided by SciVal is drawn from the Scopus Dataset.

The University has purchased a subscription to SciVal which starts 1 July 2015. SciVal is a research intelligence tool that uses the Scopus dataset, and underpins with the Times Higher Education Top 100 Under 50 university rankings and ERA methodologies. The tool has a number of strategic uses from assessing performance of researchers and research groups, recruitment, tracking collaboration, seeking new partners and evaluating the impact of research.

You can access SciVal from a UC IP address and create an account.
