Filters in the search box
Articles: Articles from scholarly journals. Using the peer-review facet in the left menu you will limit to articles reviewed by experts in the field.
E-books and printed books: Online books in full text as well as print books. Please note that theses are not found using this filter.
Printed books: Make a request if the book is currently on loan or if you want to collect it at a different branch library.
E-journals: Enter words from the title of the journal to get to the list of e-journals.
Databases: Enter words from the database title or subject area to get to the list of List of databases. Use English terms. Databases often cover large areas and the search terms therefore need to be broad, for example Physics.

Research topic analysis
Research topic analysis is used to identify topics within a volume of research, or connections to themes or issues such as, for instance, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Topic analysis may also be performed on a wider range of publication types and sources using Social Network Analysis (SNA). SNA can for example focus on the role of the authors within a network, identifying "subgroups" of authors based on similar research topics.
We can do the analysis for you or coach you in using the tool SciVal to do simpler analyses for your group.
Analyses provided typically include:
- Maps with clusters of topics of different sizes representing research volumes
- Visualization of authors who play important roles within a network; for example, authors who have high degree centrality
Topic analysis has many potential uses:
- Description of research interests of a departments, AoA, division, centre, etc.
- Identify new strategic collaboration partners through identification of overlapping or complementing research interests
- Using tools such as Scival for topic prominence analysis to get an indication of the momentum of a research field
