  • Proof that Experts is the world leader of research networking systems!
    As of 1/29/14:
    Including those in progress, there are 82 Experts implementations worldwide, 58 instances are live and publicly available. Across all 82 Expert implementations:
    3,520,146 publications, 193,932 awarded grants, & 116,266 unique researchers profiled (94,963 unique researchers profiled in the 58 live/public instances). Experts implementations span across 17 countries (14 if counting only live instances) and 5 continents
    Note: Researcher profiles from more countries than just 17 are incld in Experts, many US-based implementations (e.g., MD Anderson and Northwestern’s SOFI) incld profiles from researchers in many, many countries
    Note: The statistic for profiles includes instances in progress; however, the figures for publications and grants do not include implementations in progress – these statistics will be higher once the instances are implemented
    VIVO-compliant Experts instances
    CTSA VIVO-compliance recommendation ratified in Oct, 2011
    Northwestern University VIVO-Compliant Experts Instance launched just 10 mos later in Aug 2012 
    In 2013, 4 VIVO-Compliant Experts Instances Running on VIVO Network Northwestern University; University of California Davis; University of Indiana Medical School; Chicago Collaboration for Women in STEM
    CTSA Consortium
    22 CTSA institutions have SciVal Experts (of 62 total institutions, 35%)
    Other institutions (as reported in the CTSA RNAG 2012 survey):
    12 have Profiles (RNAG 2012 survey number)
    11 VIVO (RNAG survey number)
    12 have other systems and of those, 7 have home-grown systems (some of which have or can be represented in VIVO ontology)
    58 Experts instances are connected via the SciVal Experts Community, 56 of those are also participating in DIRECT2Experts (both are voluntary)
    Almost 72% of DIRECT2Experts (78 total) participants are SciVal Experts instances
    # of institutions with profiles in all instances that are in either the SciVal Experts Community and/or DIRECT2Experts (including non-Experts applications) with which Experts can connect: 80 institutions total round the world 
    CTSAconnect: 12 instances total (all incld in DIRECT2Experts count above), 5 (42%) are Experts site
