The IET announces full release of dynamic new research intelligence tool, Inspec Analytics

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has announced the full release of Inspec Analytics, a research intelligence tool to help research professionals explore global trends in physics, engineering and technology research.

With the changing landscape in scholarly communications placing increased emphasis on measuring the impact of research outputs, Inspec Analytics has been developed to support researchers, strategic managers and libraries in assessing the value and impact of research and make strategic decisions about the direction of their projects, departments and collaborations.

The full release includes the ability to investigate the research collaborations of organisations, the ability to filter results by location and organisation type, and enhanced interactive views which provide deeper insights into high-level and niche disciplines, allowing users to explore research trends based on organisations, controlled terms or subject classifications. Strategic managers will also benefit from being able to see an organisation’s global ranking for each field and compare one institution with another to set benchmarks.

Tim Aitken, Senior Product Manager for Inspec, said: “We are very pleased to announce that following a period of beta testing, we have now launched the full release of Inspec Analytics.

“We’ve used semantic technology to connect each element of the literature indexed in our Inspec database, for example organisations, locations and subject keywords to create the Inspec knowledge graph. Inspec Analytics allows users to navigate this map of science to identify and compare research trends across tens of thousands of organisations and scientific concepts. This makes it much easier for researchers to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and discover new topics related to their field.”

Vincent Cassidy, Head of Academic Markets at the IET said, “We’re very excited to be able to share this full release. Inspec is renowned for the precision and accuracy of our indexing and using semantic technology has allowed us to expose insights from this highly curated data to meet the changing needs of researchers and their institutions. We’ve been working closely with our customers to unlock the most valuable of these and we’ll continue to do so with regular updates to Inspec Analytics for the foreseeable future.”

Users can currently access Inspec Analytics directly via the IET’s platform. The IET are also currently working with vendor partners to allow a seamless experience for users with access to existing Inspec platforms. Inspec Analytics is available as part of the Inspec subscription.
