Web of Science and InCites – a bibliometric method for measuring, developing, and supporting your research impact

In an increasingly complex, competitive and ever-evolving global research landscape, it’s harder than ever for researchers, funders and leaders to decide where to focus their efforts to make the most impact. As research data is booming, the opportunity to uncover meaningful linkages – between past and current research, between collaborators, between funding and research impact – is huge, as it becomes even more critical to start with the right data. Join our expert to learn about Clarivate’s resources enabling in-depth research and bibliometric analysis of the scientific literature.

With the Web of Science platform, researchers can access an unrivaled breadth of world-class research literature linked to a rigorously selected core of journals and uniquely discovers new information through meticulously captured metadata and citation connections. The Web of Science platform links to regional citation indexes, patent data, specialized subject indexes and an index of research datasets, totaling more than 34,000 journals, meaning you have the breadth you need to be truly comprehensive in your search.

Built on the foundation of the Web of Science – InCites Benchmark & Analytics tool uses the most thorough, accurate, and unbiased information available to analyze institutional productivity, monitor collaboration activity,showcase strengths, discover areas of opportunity and benchmark research output against peers worldwide. InCites Benchmarking & Analytics supports a comprehensive class of advanced bibliometric indicators assessing various aspects of research performance. 

The Journal Citation Reports (JCR) provides you with the transparent, publisher-neutral data, metrics and statistics you need to make confident decisions in today’s evolving scholarly publishing landscape, whether you’re submitting your first manuscript or managing a portfolio of thousands of publications. Journal Citation Reports™ (JCR) together with Master Journal List can help you find the right journal for your research in the fastest possible time.

Altmetric and Dimensions, giving you a greater view and understanding of published research !

The Altmetric Explorer is an intuitive platform that enables you to monitor the online active surrounding academic research. Using Dimensions as well, you will be able to drill down to see what grants and patents have generated published work, as well as seeing how researchers are connected.

As an attendee of ESSS, you will be able to use both the full Altmetric and Dimensions databases, to be able to track work from Universities, Funders and Publishers.

Some of the things you can achieve by using these systems include:

  1. Analyse the citation corpus

  2. Track influence as it happens

  3. Ensure effective reputation management

  4. Support your researchers

  5. Inform strategic decision making

  6. Report on outcomes and trends

  7. Improve grant application success

You can use both the Explorer and Dimensions to run reports and analyse attention on research that matters to you, you can do this by creating custom shareable reports, exporting your saved searches to CSV files to create additional graphs, using the API to do more in-depth reporting as needed.

You will receive access to the Altmetric Explorer and Dimensions soon, which will give you access for the length of the Summer School.

Scopus – trusted, curated content

This preparatory webinar provides a comprehensive overview of Scopus so that esss participants understand the various areas where Scopus data supports decisions across the research lifecycle.
esss participants will learn about the foundations of Scopus data, including content coverage, curation, profiles, metrics and access formats. Further several search, discovery functionalities and export formats will be explained to facilitate esss exercises and tutorials. It will be briefly outlined how Scopus data can be integrated with local systems to RIMS, repositories und analytic tools/platforms.
And finally special data aspects of Scopus such as open access, preprints, funding acknowledgements, research data, patents will be presented. At the end there will be time for a Q&A.

Naturally I support any efforts to educate the younger generation of scientists and librarians on how to make constructive use of the bibliometric and scientometric data that is available to them. I wish you all the best in your new endeavor. Best wishes.
