 SciVal: Discovering Collaborations


Networking at meetings and talking with colleagues are great ways to find collaborators. However, have you considered what journal articles can show you about collaborations? For example, the first graph presents the top collaborations for the past 5 years of PNNL co-authored publications in the field of atmospheric sciences.

The second image presents the number of publications in the field of atmospheric sciences at academic institutions where potential collaborations may exist. The next step would be to analyze these papers to identify the direction of the organization's research.

This information was captured using the Collaboration feature in SciVal. This feature allows you to discover past collaborations that have shown success, as well as dig deeper and see collaborations you may want to investigate.

Take advantage of the Technical Library's expertise with SciVal to maximize its value to your collaboration startegy.

What would you like to see analyzed? Submit a suggestion.
