Using Clarivate Analytics Data with VIVO

  • Web of Science: If you are one of the 8,000+ institutions who use the Web of Science database, you can automatically populate VIVO profiles with metadata for research outputs using our APIs. The Web of Science Core Collection is a trusted source of records from over 20,000 peer-reviewed journals from around the world and across 250 disciplines in science, social sciences, and arts & humanities. It also contains records for thousands of conferences and books to showcase a range of research outputs in VIVO profiles. Our APIs also enable you to include a times cited count in VIVO as a measure of research impact for your publications. The Data Citation Index provides records of millions of datasets from trusted data repositories. Our API can also be used to integrate these datasets into researcher profiles in VIVO. Check out our demo site to see the data in action.
  • InCites Benchmarking and Analytics: Subscribers to our InCites Benchmarking and Analytics product have access to APIs that enable further integration of rich Web of Science Core Collection metadata into VIVO profiles, as well as citation indicators like "highly cited paper" or "industry collaboration".
