SciVal Experts is an expertise profiling and research networking tool that makes it easier for researchers and administrators to find expertise and enable collaboration with the University and across institutions by creating profiles for our funded faculty members. Pre-populated with publication histories from the Scopus abstract and citation database, this data is manually reviewed to ensure our researcher's profiles are precise and up-to-date. SciVal Experts also produces a visual semantic index, or Fingerprint, of relevant concepts that instantly reveals each researcher's distinctive expertise, and uses this information to expose valuable connections between faculty members.
SciVal Experts enables researchers to:
- Browse profiles or search by concept, last name or free text to identify collaborators for grant teams, learn about new journals in their field and discover articles to read
- View researchers' Fingerprints, publication histories and co-author networks to explore their unique expertise as well as their connections to other faculty members and institutions
- Track and update their profile information to keep their publication histories current and visible
- Expand their research reach by searching across the SciVal Experts Community that connects users to research across SciVal Experts institutions, and the DIRECT2 experts network that links users to researchers at organizations with other profile systems
SciVal Experts can also help administrators assist researchers connect with other experts to form multidisciplinary teams, introduce new faculty members to potential collaborators and access up-to-date publication lists by researcher and department. Students can use SciVal Experts to find mentors, discover articles to read and explore research areas.
