Elsevier Launches The New Generation SciVal, Providing Dynamic Real-Time Analytics And Insights Into The Global Research Landscape

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the launch of the new generation SciVal. SciVal will allow research organizations to analyze the world of research, enabling them to establish, execute and evaluate their research strategies by revealing insights based on Scopus data. Users can benchmark their research performance accurately and meaningfully against any other institution or group of researchers in the world.

The research landscape is facing increasing globalization and competition, and there is growing recognition and evidence for the role that scholarly research plays in driving sustainable economic development. All academic, government and industrial research facilities are experiencing greater pressure to optimize their resources to excel in unique ways in an increasingly crowded market place. The current international research economy is so vast and complex, with more than 7 million researchers worldwide, that an evidence base is increasingly required to supplement insights drawn from personal knowledge and peer review.

To serve research institutions better in generating hard facts to support their evidence-based decision making, Elsevier has fully integrated the analytical capabilities of its first generation SciVal solutions, SciVal Spotlight and SciVal Strata, and has enhanced the tools to make them more comprehensive and intuitive.

"The new generation of SciVal has been developed following years of close co-operation with leading research institutions globally," said Dr. Nick Fowler, Managing Director of Academic and Government Institutions at Elsevier.  "We hope that research leaders will view the result as a significant step forward in helping them to monitor and manage their institution's research strategies."

The new tool enables users to configure, visualize and export information according to their personal needs and preferences, so that they can benchmark with meaning and accuracy to understand their position relative to their peers, as well as relative to global and domestic standards. The results can be used to help answer the enormously diverse questions that are increasingly faced in the management of research, such as identifying research strengths, uncovering current collaborations and finding potential new partners, and enabling scenario modeling. The results are also a powerful communication tool to showcase the distinctive strengths of research institutions to students, academics and funders.
