SciVal Experts is an Elsevier product that outlines a researcher's "fingerprint."
At the University of Utah, our top 800 researchers (by grant award $), have SciVal Expert profiles automatically populated!
SciVal Expert profiles are available to the top 800 researchers at the University of Utah, based on the amount of awarded grant monies.
Profiles can be searched within your organization, throughout the SciVal Experts Community, by topic, or even by full text.
Researcher profiles include a "fingerprint," showing the topics the researcher publishes on most often. The longer the bar associated with each topic, the more it appears in the researcher's publications.
Also included are a list of publications (drawn from Scopus), co-authors, similar experts, and journals the researcher publishes in, and, if available, the researcher's CV.
This information may be used to identify others in your organization (or from other institutions) to collaborate with for publication and funding opportunities, and even to help build a tenure file!
Elsevier collects information directly from user input, as well as automatically through its own technologies.
This may include information given when signing up for an account (contact information, username, comments), or IP address, location services, etc.
