Inspec Analytics helps research directors, senior faculty, information professionals and researchers evaluate engineering research.
Is your university looking to understand published engineering output in order to support the research, identify research opportunities or identify collaborators? Tim Aitken, Senior Product Manager for Inspec at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (The IET), recently presented Three Ways of Looking at the Global Engineering Landscape, a Library Journal webinar sponsored by EBSCO and The IET. Tim looks at engineering research from three perspectives:
The IET’s vision is to “share knowledge that helps make better sense of the world in order to solve the challenges that matter.”
The IET has found that scholarly societies are “identified as potential partners in a changing world of discourse.” The IET’s vision is to “share knowledge that helps make better sense of the world in order to solve the challenges that matter.”
Having classified published engineering literature for fifty years, The IET was uniquely positioned to develop new ways to look at the world’s engineering literature. Inspec covers more then 28,000 organizations, 3,500 subject classifications and 9,900 control terms.
Enter Inspec Analytics — a simple but sophisticated tool that uses the content within Inspec to enable:
Watch the webinar to learn how to assess your institution’s engineering impact using Inspec and Inspec Analytics. Inspec Analytics is available to those institutions who subscribe to Inspec through EBSCO.
Tim joined the Institution of Engineering and Technology in 2016 as Product Manager of Inspec, having worked in scientific data management for over 15 years. Tim studied Chemistry & Computing from Brighton University, and began work as a software developer, developing algorithms and applications to model the behaviour of druglike molecules in the human body. After this, Tim worked for several scientific software and database companies, supporting and training customers working in pharmaceutical and chemical research, before moving into experimental data management and research workflow solutions, specialising in scientific data visualization and query applications.
