The collaboration will enable institutions in the Nordics to automatically display media coverage of research publications on affiliated researchers’ profile pages
Jerusalem, Israel—March 22, 2021. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is pleased to announce its partnership with Retriever, a data analysis company and communication insight provider in the Nordic countries. Through this partnership, the Ex Libris Esploro™ research information management solution will be integrated with Retriever’s digital media platform. As a result, institutions that subscribe to the Esploro solution and Retriever service will see their researchers’ profiles automatically updated with new media mentions.
Our goal is to help institutions exhibit the full scope of research impact across academic and non-academic channels.
Media coverage of published research work is often a key factor in increasing the impact of publications and contributing to the reputation of researchers and institutions. By automatically identifying media mentions and connecting them to researcher profiles, institutions can arrive at a better measure of the impact of their research investment and researchers can gain a better understanding of the influence of their work.
Nadav Doron, Ex Libris vice president of research information management solutions, commented, “Popular media is an important channel through which researchers and institutions can inform the general public and political leaders of research findings and extend the social impact of publications. Our goal is to help institutions exhibit the full scope of research impact across academic and non-academic channels. Through our collaboration with Retriever, institutions in the Nordics will be able to apply the power of Retriever’s monitoring service to bring media stories into their researcher profiles.”
