Using Scival, you can evaluate the performance of a known researcher in the field and decide if he or she would be a suitable collaborator for you . You can start the process by defining and creating a profile of that researcher.

To define and view a researcher:

  • Go to My SciVal and click on “Define a new Researcher”
  • Next go to Overview module and select your new researcher.
  • You can now evaluate the research performance of this researcher. You can also see the collaborating institutions and co-authors of this researcher.

The Institutions and Authors tabs for a country can also be used to identify potential collaboration partners - both institutions and individual researchers. Suppose you are looking for collaboration partners in the United States within the field of Mathematics, here are the steps you can take:

  • Select United States in the entity selection panel
  • Select Mathematics from the dropdown menu at the top of the page
  • Go to the Institutions and Authors tabs to find out who the key players in that country are.
