SciVal Strata

Share this on social media:

SciVal Strata, from Elsevier, is a new web-based research performance tool. It claims to offer users the flexibility to construct relevant contextual data to evaluate research teams or individual researchers, using a range of indicators based on Scopus data. SciVal Strata can be used by all members of a subscribing institution to demonstrate research excellence and to secure, allocate and measure return-on-investment of funding. The tool is also expected to improve recruitment, promotion and collaboration processes.

SciVal Strata enables users to envision alternate research groups by ‘dragging and dropping’ any researcher across the globe into hypothetical teams and gauge expected changes in performance by benchmarking ‘fantasy’ groups against existing groups.
