With SciVal you can analyze, visualize and compare the publication performance of individuals, groups, institutions and countries. In addition, potential cooperation partners in science and industry can be found and research trends can be analyzed. SciVal is based on the Scopus database.

With the help of predefined topics and topic clusters as well as self-defined research areas, you can analyze which individuals and institutions are active in a research field and could possibly be considered as cooperation partners.

In addition, you can examine the extent to which individual topics are currently of particular interest in research and how interest in these topics changes over time. In this way, research trends can be identified at an early stage.

SciVal is available to all members of TU Dortmund University via an IP address of TU Dortmund University after registration.

The library offers a live demo for anyone interested in TU Dortmund University. Please contact us to arrange a date.
