In January 2015, Penn State identified a need for an analytics tool that could better track and benchmark its research output across all departments. At that time, the university used Profiles Research Networking Software, a free open-source tool designed to import public information into a searchable library of electronic curriculum vitaes (CVs). Penn State was looking for a solution that could provide data source transparency and data integrity. Instead of issuing an RFP, the research team chose to pilot Elsevier SciVal, and a year later the institution received funding to purchase Elsevier’s Pure, a research information management system.
