Imperial College London staff and students have access to SciVal, a tool that provides access to data on research performance. Suited to the needs of researchers and support services staff, the tool uses bibliometric indicators that, if used without understanding or context, might not accurately and appropriately represent the data. We encourage all current and potential users of SciVal to watch the recorded training below and contact bibliometrics@imperial.ac.uk with any questions regarding the tool or the indicators used within it.

Trainer: Dr Charles Martinez, Elsevier

Please note that the recordings available represent SciVal in March 2019 and that some functionality is likely to have changed if watching at a later date.
