Institutional Metrics

Institutional metrics examine an institution’s research outputs, collaborations with others, and the academic impact based on the publications and the number of times they have been cited.

InCites and SciVal are citation-based research evaluation tools, that can

  • Track an institution's research output and impact
  • Benchmark an institution against others
  • Examine an institution's research output and impact by discipline
  • Evaluate an institution's collaborations

When we find where we are, then we will find the ways to increase the overall impact.
