Imperial College London has developed an analytics tool that presents data on the diversity of affiliated countries of authors of journal articles cited on the College's module reading lists. This currently represents over 13,000 articles cited on approximately 1,700 modules taught in different yearsThis has been created to help staff and students access data that may inform broader discussions about representation in curricula.

Example of type of data available. It shows country affiliation of journal article authors cited on one Imperial module reading list.













The data available in the tool has come from Leganto and it’s availability can depend on how it was entered into Leganto by course leaders at the time. It is also limited to journal articles only. This may mean that data is not available or fully representative of some modules.

The tool is available on request to staff and students who would like to engage in meaningful exploration of their curricula. Staff and students interested to access the analytics platform are asked to request a consultation meeting to learn more about the tool and understand if data can be useful for their purposes.
