Elsevier Announces Its Collaboration With Qatar University

DOHA, Qatar, September 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Access to SciVal Experts connects Qatar University's researchers across disciplines and institutions, locally and internationally

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced its collaboration with Qatar University by providing access to SciVal Experts, allowing for effective management of researcher profiles and subject area expertise identification for future collaboration projects.

SciVal Experts, a product of Elsevier's SciVal research management solutions, is a researcher networking tool which helps locate researchers within and across disciplines and institutions. Built on publication history data from Scopus - the world's largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature - SciVal Experts provides an overview of researchers' current publication data and grant information, making it easier to find subject area experts and form research teams within but also across organizations and institutions, locally and internationally.

"With access to SciVal Experts Qatar University will be able to more efficiently manage its constantly evolving database of faculty and researcher profiles," said Dr. Moumen O. Hasnah, Director of Academic Research at Qatar University. "In our aim to stimulate and develop a more collaborative approach to research, we are pleased to provide our researchers with access to SciVal Experts, driven by data from Scopus, to help advance the research community at Qatar University."

"Elsevier is honored to work together with Qatar University by providing them access to SciVal Experts," said Nick Fowler, Elsevier's Managing Director Academic & Government Institutional Markets. "We believe that it will enhance the effectiveness of their research performance, stimulating effective and efficient collaboration initiatives not only among researchers at the University, but also globally."

About Qatar University

In 1973, Qatar's first national College of Education was founded following a decree by the Emir of Qatar in his vision to place education as a priority in the country's expansion. Among a small population, the college admitted a respectable 57 male and 93 female students in its first year. Today, Qatar University comprises seven colleges: Arts and Sciences; Business and Economics; Education; Engineering; Law; Pharmacy; and Sharia and Islamic Studies. The university has over the years added a wide range of new programs that are aligned with the growing needs of the labor market and the aspirations of the society it serves. It currently boasts a population of over 8000 students and an alumni body of over 30,000.
