WASHINGTON, May 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Interfolio, pioneer in faculty-focused technology for higher education, is announcing a premium integration with its long-term partner Clarivate Analytics to provide valuable faculty publication and citation information.
By leveraging records from the Web of Science InCites service from Clarivate Analytics, Interfolio will be able to provide research analytics, citation metrics, and faculty publication information at-a-glance within its faculty activity reporting platform. As a result of this powerful integration, scholars will be able to track, analyze and sync this research data with other valuable sources of faculty activity within a single, user-centric platform. Faculty members benefit from increased transparency and insight into their work, as well as significant time savings.
“We are excited to build on the long and successful partnership with Interfolio, ensuring that our mutual customers for Web of Science and InCites get maximum benefit from the wide variety of content and metrics made available through their Clarivate subscriptions,” said Emmanuel Thiveaud, Head of Research Analytics at Clarivate. “We strongly believe that enhancing the accessibility and immediacy of our content via our suite of APIs greatly benefits the end users, and Interfolio’s Faculty180 platform is an excellent showcase for this.”
Interfolio currently offers the most extensive set of scholarly data sources through direct integrations with services such as Web of Science, ArXiv, PubMed, Medline, ADS, iNSPIRE, Academic Analytics, ORCID, and the Canadian Common CV, as well as imports from faculty profile systems, such as Google Scholar, Mendeley, Microsoft Academic Search, and others. Interfolio also integrates with embedded campuses technology, such as ERP and HR systems, course evaluation products (such as CoursEval and Evaluation Kit), student information systems (SIS), campus grant and funding management systems, and legacy or home-grown technology. In addition, Interfolio’s open and accessible APIs allow data to be pushed out of its system to enrich campus websites and repositories, data warehouses, and any other campus system where a rich source of faculty activity data is valuable.
“As a faculty-centric organization that prides itself on creating the best shared governance workflow engine in the industry, we are trying to deepen our product’s value by providing faculty with essential insights into their research activity,” said Andrew Rosen, Interfolio CEO. “Our goal is to make it easier for faculty to update and maintain their CVs with accurate, thorough data sets.”
Amongst competitors, Interfolio is unique in that its data partnerships are both robust and mature: the majority of its partnerships, including Web of Science from Clarivate Analytics, have been functional within the faculty activity reporting platform for over five years.
“We’re always looking for ways to use and integrate with external data sources that will enrich and simplify the faculty experience,” said Scott Wymer, Ph.D., VP of Academic Technology at Interfolio and founder of DATA180. “Clarivate has a very rich data set and has been an enthusiastic partner to work with.”
Interfolio is the first administrative enterprise SaaS solution to provide a faculty-first engine for intelligent decision making in higher education. With its January 2017 acquisition of DATA180, a scholar-centric faculty activity reporting company founded by two former professors, Interfolio has captured the faculty-oriented technology market space by offering an end-to-end solution for the entire faculty life-cycle. Interfolio offers modules for faculty recruitment and hiring; review, promotion, and tenure; and faculty activity reporting and accreditation. Visit www.interfolio.com to learn more.
