MSU Scholars is an MSU-specific instance of the web based tool, SciVal Experts/SciVal Funding. MSU Scholars replaces MSU's subscription to Community of Science. MSU Scholars is open to the public, and anyone can access department and faculty profiles to search for research activities and expertise by name, keywords or concepts. All tenure stream and fixed term faculty and academic specialists with research appointments are included in MSU Scholars. Each faculty member is listed under all colleges/departments in which he or she has a formal appointment.
By mining the text found in your profile entry (publication titles, publication abstracts), SciVal Experts automatically generates a "fingerprint" or visualization of the relative use of different words and concepts to describe your research expertise. Keywords from your profile are mapped by the system to subject-specific thesauri to present concepts in a standardized way.
