Research Analytics Service
The Research Analytics Service supports researchers and Departments/Schools in accessing and interpreting publications, citations and collaboration data.
We can advise on using publications, citations and collaborations data to:
- Evidence your research strengths
- Monitor & benchmark the research profile and performance of your research group, Department or School
- Explore a research field: identify key institutions, researchers & journals
- Explore collaboration networks
We can also provide tailor made reports to support University activities.
We adhere to and advocate the University of Bath’s Principles of research assessment and management.
