The clinic will be open from 13:45 and will run from 14:00 to 15:00.
This training is free to attend, but access to Scopus and prior knowledge of Scopus is expected as the training will be at aimed at an intermediate level.
This webinar will discuss the specifics of how Scopus is used as a bibliometric data source by some of the most visible global university rankings, such as those issued by Times Higher Education (THE) and Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
The international higher education system is growing, creating fiercer competition for top talent and funding. Deciding on where to study, teach, or how to refine research strategies have become more complex — and data-driven institution rankings have become a key resource.
Rankings are particularly helpful in revealing institutions’ relative strengths, providing crucial information for would-be students, professionals navigating their academic careers, policymakers planning funding programs, and research and education leaders who make decisions on behalf of institutions in areas like teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international visibility.
But for rankings to be as helpful to the academic community as possible, good data and a comprehensive global view is an absolute must.
Who should attend
- Research officers assessing an institutes’ research strengths, collaborations and impact
- Bibliometricians/analysts responsible for measuring the reach of an institutions’ publications using Scopus
- Librarians with an interest in the details of how their institute’s publications in Scopus feed into the rankings
What we cover
- The key role that Scopus plays in the different university rankings
- How do you ensure that your institution’s Scopus data is up to date
- Briefly introduce Scopus Institution Profile Wizard (IPW)
Following the online webinar, attendees will be able to better understand:
- Why international rankings are important and what role Scopus data plays
