The Reporting feature allows you to export metrics from the Overview or Benchmarking module and group them together with explanatory text. You can access Reporting in several ways:
Reports are made up of one or more analyses, which are combinations of metrics usually originating in the Overview or Benchmarking modules
Using the example of the research group set up in the 'Individual Metrics: creating research groups' section , go to Benchmarking, select the group JW/FO’B/DH as well as the profiles for David Henshall, Fergal O’Brien and John Waddington. Select the following metrics:
Select the date range: 2013 to >2018
Then click on the Add to Reporting link.
You will now be offered the option to create a report or add this analysis (the three metrics) to an existing reports. Click on the Add to a report button and create a report called JW/FO’B/DH. Click on Save. Another box appears confirming that the analysis has been added to the report. You can now continue to display and save other metrics or go directly to Reporting tab to display the report.
For this example, display another three metrics:
Click on Add to Reporting and add these metrics to the report JW/FO’B/DH
Go to the Reporting Module – link on the tabs at the top of the screen
Your reports are stored in this module. Click on the box beside the report name and then on Open/Edit
The Structure option displays the saved analyses. You can delete any of these or change the order of display if you wish.
Click on View to display the report. You can customise it by adding descriptions and it can be exported to a spreadsheet or a pdf document. This report within SciVal will be updated with each new Scopus upload, so if you want to save the data, export to a spreadsheet or pdf file. Save as a snapshot if you don’t want the data to be updated.
You can also email the report to others by clicking on the Share button.
