A new campus tool is making it easier to find research collaborators on campus, while also highlighting the impressive productivity of campus researchers. . . .
APIR is the campus liaison to Academic Analytics, which populates the scholar profiles from available information in CrossRef on journal articles, citations, conference proceedings, books and book chapters. Academic Analytics data, updated nightly, also includes federal grant awards, honorific awards, patents and clinical trials. UW-Madison institutional data rounds out the information available through Academic Analytics and includes additional grant data, courses taught and technologies available for licensing from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF). . . .
“Research at UW–Madison provides a new way of looking at research accomplishments of scholars, departments programs, and the entire institution,” says Steve Ackerman, vice chancellor for research and graduate education, “and it increases the visibility of the university’s research enterprise to industry, foundations and other potential collaborators, as well as prospective students and faculty members.”
