Computing - Support for researchers.

Our "Support for Researchers" pages include reference management tools and searching for information sections that may be useful for academic and research staff. We also have specialist topic areas which are relevant to all academic and research staff, along with many PhD students, and those who want to dive a little deeper into their research. The resources below are an example of what's on offer. There are many more resources to explore on these pages.

Specialist e-resources

• Bibliometrics not in Discovery 

This page gives you a short(ish!) tour around the most common author and journal metrics that you'll likely to encounter. In a nutshell, these metrics (e.g. a journal's Impact Factor or author's h-index) are a 'score' derived from the number of citations that academic research articles have accrued. Collectively, these metrics are referred to as bibliometrics. If you need further help, please contact the Library.

• Research Data Management not in Discovery 

In recent years, there’s been a global drive towards open science, the public sharing of research data and good data management practice. This page explains what this means in practice for academic staff/researchers/doctoral students at Portsmouth. (This information is also useful for undergraduates and masters students, but always consult your tutor/supervisor in the first instance.)

• SciVal 

SciVal offers access to the research performance of 5,500 research institutions and 220 countries worldwide.
