Access to SciVal will help Directors of academic programs and academic experts to pinpoint the most promising fields of research in humanities (and other fields), analyze publication statistics and strategically plan academic development. With the assistance from SciVal RSUH will be able to strengthen its position in international ratings tables more effectively.
Elsevier experts will be holding a series of seminars with RSUH faculty and editorial staff to help them learn to analyze information using SciVal and Scopus, choose the best journals and conferences from the scientometric point of view as well as interpret these data.
