Common user scenarios

Control your own data to inform your editorial strategy

A common problem

In order to fully understand the impact of your content, publishers need to be able to interrogate analytics data. To this do this effectively, you need to be able to import, export and edit the data and visualizations to answer your specific questions. Generic analytics platforms do not enable publishers to do this.

How we can help

Impact Vizor enables you to upload additional data, such as country of corresponding author and primary funder of research to supplement the usage data and make the results more meaningful. Usage Vizor enables you to slice and dice the data covering article usage, institution usage, and turn away attempts.

Rejected article tracker

A common problem

Obtain insight into rejected journal articles including where they are eventually published and their citation rates. Filter by topic, editor, or publishing journal for a different view of the data.

How we can help

Evaluate the quality of articles being rejected to measure the effectiveness of your editorial program. Determine whether or not you reject enough quality content to populate a new journal section or develop an entirely new journal. Conduct competitive analysis by identifying which publications are benefiting from your rejected articles.

Visualize the difference

A common problem
