VU Library offers researchers and support staff two new alternative metric tools: AltmetricExplorer and Scival. In March and April 2018 we offer two types of hands on tailored training, in which you learn:
- what kind of questions can be addressed with AltmetricExplorer and/or Scival;
- how to make different types of evaluations and reports.

Training A: Measuring societal attention with AltmetricExplorer & Scival
Training B: Making a research performance analysis with Scival

Altmetric Explorer gives you an insight in the societal relevance of your research (group). It shows you who is talking about your research in policy documents, social or news media. SciVal enables a quick visualisation of research performance as well as a comparison with that of fellow researchers and institutions. The tool additionally is useful to evaluate current collaborations or to find potential new collaborators.

Tailored training
Metric tools can be used for many different purposes, e.g. searching for research partners, recruiting professors, benchmarking your research group with others, providing evidence when applying for grants. Thus we offer target group tailored training for both Scival and AltmetricExplorer.
