Academic Metrics
The academic metrics section of UNIWeb is where the raw statistical data from the UNIWeb members' CVs is collected and translated into meaningful information. Data from ten different categories are compiled here, updated automatically as members of the network compose and modify their academic CVs. These categories can be used to monitor the achievements and engagement of an institution or faculty over time or can be exported for formal use in a report:
    Publications
    Artistic Contributions
    Intellectual Properties
    Interviews and Media Relations
    Presentations
    Recognition
    Student Supervision
    Teaching Activities
    Course Development
    Program Development
    Research Funding History
Using preset visualization tools, UNIWeb can help you organize this information in the form of bar and line graphs, or lists. These graphing presets can be filtered, but if you need granular control over the information or graphing, UNIWeb offers powerful custom filtering tools to download academic metric information's raw data in an excel sheet.
