SciVal is a research performance assessment tool that provides analysis of publication and citation data included in Scopus. Scopus covers over 30 million publications from 1996 to the present. SciVal does a weekly check for new publications in Scopus. Researchers and institutions in SciVal are then automatically updated with any new publications found in Scopus.
SciVal can provide analysis of the performance of your own research, or at the University, College, School or research group level (including the field weighted citation impact), as well as individual researchers and institutions worldwide. SciVal allows you to visualise research performance, benchmark against peers using a number of metrics, review co-author networks and identify potential collaborative partnerships.
SciVal is available to all University of Newcastle staff and students and can be accessed via the Library's Databases A-Z List, or from within Scopus. If you already have a Scopus or Science Direct username and password you can login to SciVal with that.
