Impact Metrics Reporting

Impact Metrics Reporting

The University of Lincoln subscribes to SciVal, which you can use to look at the metrics associated with your own work and those of your colleagues, benchmark against other institutions, model and look for potential collaborations, among other things.

You can access the tool at www.scopus.com .  Pick “Other Institution Login” from the “Login” menu.  Type Lincoln into the box and choose University of Lincoln, you get boxes where you can put your network credentials.  SciVal is on the drop-down menu at the top right.  You won’t be able to use it off-campus unless you are on the cloud desktop.

For help and information you can download the Guidebook, or contact your College administrator or a member of the Research Income Generation Support team.

If you need reports on published works from within the repository, or anything you can’t find on SciVal, contact eprints@lincoln.ac.uk and we’ll try to help.
