Elsevier's Scival(R) Spotlight(TM) Country Maps Provide a National Perspective of Interdisciplinary Research

 

AMSTERDAM, November 8, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Elsevier, the world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the availability of SciVal Spotlight country maps (http://www.info.scival.com). The country maps are a new option for academic and governmental decision makers seeking to understand national research strengths against the increasingly interdisciplinary backdrop of global research. They are an extension of the SciVal Spotlight solution, which uses an innovative analytical algorithm to reveal customized graphical representations of research performance over time and across scientific fields.

SciVal Spotlight institutional maps launched in June of 2009 offering detailed views of the unique research competencies of research institutions, recognizing an emerging need to visualize research performance at a national level. The addition of country maps enables research decision makers to broaden their analytical scope of global research output.

"Working with research institutions and funding bodies across the globe, we uncovered a growing demand for ways to analyze interdisciplinary research strengths in the context of a national research footprint," explained Jay Katzen, Managing Director of Elsevier Academic and Government Products. "By adding country maps to SciVal Spotlight, we can address this need by allowing strategic decision makers to adjust their focus and gain a wider perspective of the research horizon. Presented with a national view on research performance, academic and governmental research advisors will have stronger quantitative evidence to support critical funding, policy, and strategic research decisions."

Moving beyond the traditional method of measuring research output by publication and citation counts, the underlying model of SciVal Spotlight relies on the co-citation analysis of over 16,000 peer-reviewed journals to more accurately reflect the current structure of science. Leveraging this new model of science, SciVal Spotlight country maps allow institutions to understand how their work contributes to their nation's research strengths as well as their relative national standing within each of these research competencies. The country maps can also be used to identify potential areas for specialization, diversification, or collaboration. In addition, by measuring the regional size and growth of each national competency, the sustainability of leadership positions can be analyzed.

Illustrating the unique insight SciVal Spotlight offers, Elsevier is in the process of conducting a detailed analysis of the water resources landscape. The study, scheduled for release in Q4 of this year, will identify trends and reveal leading institutes and up-and-coming countries in this area of research. For additional information about the study or to receive a copy of the report on key findings when available, please contact Sandra Plasse at +1-212-752-8338 or splasse@psbpr.com.
