Impact Vizor

Understanding what is helping or hurting impact and what resonates with researchers are the most persistent challenges facing scholarly publishers. Feedback from citation monitoring tools is slow, often lagging up to three years behind publication, and it is difficult to interpret. Publishers and editors are left with very little data to rely upon when assessing the immediate needs of the research community and often must rely on anecdotes and personal intuition when making business and editorial decisions. Impact Vizor solves this challenge by providing early insight into impact so that publishers can make evidence-based business and editorial decisions.
