March 15th of this year, a new DEFF project called "Research Output & Impact Analyzed & Visualized" was launched. The aims are to teach participants to complement data-rich bibliometric and other analyzes with data visualizations. Libraries often prepare analyzes for the management at the library or university, but frequently data analyzes can be hard to understand and overview, and this is where visualizations can be helpful.

They all have the purpose to facilitate the understanding of the data or possibly even reveal new insights into the data set. The project aims to:
and, as a result, to:
The project has participants from the University of Copenhagen, The Royal Library, Copenhagen and Aarhus, the Technical University of Denmark and the University of Southern Denmark.
Work package focused on analysis and visualization tools
The project is currently active in the part that deals with competency development of the participants, and works in smaller groups with tools like VOSviewer, Science of Science (Sci2) Tool, Tableau, Excel, Gephi, R, NVivo, OpenRefine and Google Data Studio.
Work package focused on VIVO as a Reaserch Analytics Platform
In the work package focused on VIVO as a Research Analytics Platform, a co-publication analysis module including a report generator and visualization has been developed. The efforts are currently focused on optimizing data and the report generator.
All the cool new tools we test, and helpful resources we come across during our journey, we will share with you on this site - so stay tuned.
