Elsevier Announces SciVal Spotlight Country Maps

Elsevier announced the availability of SciVal Spotlight country maps—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 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.

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 more than 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.
