The InCites benchmarking and analytics tool is a web-based research evaluation solution intended to help in the development of research strategies. Potential use cases include the evaluation of academic departments, institutional comparisons, and identification of opportunities for collaboration.
Publication, citation, and usage data come from the Web of Science Core Collection.
To access InCites, ensure that you go through the Library-provided link: http://lib-ezproxy.hkbu.edu.hk/login?url=https://incites.clarivate.com
You will also need to register for a free personal account. If you already have an account for other Clarivate Analytics products (e.g. Web of Science) you can use this account to login to InCites.
There is a lot that you can do with the InCites platform, but one common use is to generate a report on a researcher (or group of researchers). This can be easily done by running the relevant InCites System Report. Simply input the ORCID iD of the researcher(s) you are interested in, and a report will be generated:
There is an institutional profile option under system reports. This allows for a high-level overview of the research output of an entire institution. You can drill down into each metric for closer analysis.
Below are just a few of the metrics that you can access in InCites:
Category Normalized Citation Impact (CNCI) is citation impact normalized for subject, year, and document type. A CNCI of more than 1 means that the output is more cited than expected according to the global average, e.g. 1.48 means 48% more cited than expected.
Highly-Cited Papers is an indicator that shows the volume of papers that are classified in the top 1% in each of the 22 Essential Science Indicator subject areas per year.
