Measuring your impact with SciVal

Published on
May 30, 2017

Most researchers at Wageningen University and Research are familiar with the bibliometric analysis provided in Staff Publications. Recently, the Library also offers SciVal, a tool for the evaluation of your publications.

SciVal is based on the publication database Scopus. It covers more output than our own bibliometric analysis, which is based on the smaller database Web of Science.

Access to SciVal

Go to and log in with your Elsevier account (or create one). Once you have logged in, you will see the homepage with three modules on it (overview, benchmarking, and collaboration). An introduction on SciVal and its available modules can be found on the OpenScience blog "SciVal - What is that?". You can use SciVal on campus only.

We invite you to read and to comment on the blogposts of the OpenScience blog.

For questions please contact the WUR Library Servicedesk.
