Academic Analytics

Benchmarking, Research Insight & Discovery Site

Please open this report (click here) to access comprehensive list of all awards, journals and publishers covered in Academic Analtics data.

The Benchmarking Comparative Tools helps all levels of campus administrators delve deeper into the data, including information on universities, schools and colleges, departments, programs, and individual scholars. Research grants, scholarly publications, honorific awards, and many other data points may be contextualized by choosing relevant peers, content, and time windows for analysis. The comparative product offers campus-wide support for strategic planning through discipline-specific online analytic tools.
The Database is used for hiring and retention initiatives, department review support, honorific award nomination analysis, development of publication strategies, mentoring junior faculty members, and much more.

Research Insight helps administrators and faculty members find subject matter experts within an institution or externally, build diverse teams, and identify funding opportunities. Administrators and researchers use Research Insight to build limited submission grant teams, help with strategic planning, identify talent for specific initiatives, and analyze the efficacy of collaborative cross-disciplinary teams.

Public facing website encompassing the research portfolio of the entire university. It is intended to put UTSA's research strengths front and center for potential industrial partners, prospective students and faculty members, and the media. Discovery Site showcases UTSA's scholarly activity and areas of expertise to provide avenues of exploration for connections between students and faculty, business and industry and researchers, as well as connections between faculty members themselves. Searches with key words or topics produce profiles on faculty and researchers involved in research in those areas.

Yes, Academic Analytics has plotted the career progression of the entire population of scholars in each of the 172 disciplines in our database. Combining these data with information about the degree granting institution provides evidence for administrators to assess the effectiveness of their Ph.D. programs, as well as information to support graduate recruitment. The data can also be used to answer queries from state legislative bodies and others seeking information about the outcomes of Ph.D. graduates.

Yes, Unit Modeling in the Academic Analytics portal is a powerful modeling tool to create "what if" scenarios showing the impact of gaining new faculty members with particular characteristics (i.e., junior versus senior scholars, a history of acquiring certain types of grants, etc.) or losing a faculty member to retirement. Users can custom-select peers and appropriate data timeframes to establish a meaningful context for a more complete view of the unit and how it practices the discipline. Unit modeling is also a powerful way to show the possibilities for the unit's research activity, for instance to make the case for offering a Ph.D. in a given area in addition to a master's degree. The unit modeler also offers an objective path forward for a unit with which to engage potential donors and prospective new faculty members.

Faculty Insight

Faculty Insight empowers users to uncover public and private funding opportunities and potential collaborators that span discipline, campus location, and academic age, providing faculty with a competitive advantage when competing for federal research resources. Faculty Insight provides faculty users with an integrated search tool, a pre-populated faculty profile page, a profile editing tool with which to add additional scholarly activity, and targeted funding opportunities - all in one integrated, intuitive interface.
