SciVal uses the Scopus database and provides publication information and metrics of over 10,000 research institutions, countries and individual researchers.  

You can define your own publication sets, groups or research areas by using keywords, importing publications from Scopus for example. You can also collect and group names of colleagues or collaborators to analyse group performances. 

Use Overview to get a high-level overview of the research performance of TU Delft, other institutions, countries and groups of researchers.

Use Benchmarking to compare and benchmark TU Delft with other institutions, researchers and groups of researchers using a variety of metrics.

Use the Collaboration module to explore the collaboration network of both TU Delft and other institutions.
