InCites, SciVal, Altmetric Explorer (as well as Scopus and Web of Science which contain some author metrics) are available via the Databases by title list, on the eResources page (opens in a new window) on the Library website.

  • InCites/SciVal is useful for mapping publications with international collaborators
  • Scopus and Web of Science also contain analysis about which countries authors who have cited your work are from, along with which subject areas you are being cited in
  • Google Scholar is best for those types of research outputs that are not as comprehensively captured by the major scholarly databases (eg reports, books, book chapters etc.)
