EVIDENCE-BASED DECISION-MAKING

SHAPE your institution’s future with actionable data

1figr helps with the strategic positioning of your institution and your journal subscriptions.

Libraries increasingly play a pivotal role in providing metrics on the scientific production of universities. These data are not only useful to inform strategic planning at the organizational level, they are also key to managing subscriptions by ascertaining that a library’s strength is optimally aligned with that of its university.

It is more important than ever to make the right decisions regarding your holdings and to ensure your institution has the proper acquisition mix. 1figr Institution provides information on publications per field of research, impact based on citation analysis, capacity to publish in highly cited journals and how quickly your published output grows compared to the world front. It will also help you determine how far along your open access efforts are.

1figr provides a bibliographic analysis of your organization’s active journal subscriptions. This report reveals what journals your researchers publish in and what journals they cite, and combines this information with download statistics. These metrics are expertly combined to yield uniquely powerful decision-making aids for librarians to make sure libraries are subscribed to the best combination of journals.
