Baylor University has partnered with Academic Analytics to assist faculty in advancing their research. The Academic Analytics database contains scholarly works for faculty at over 400 U.S.-based research universities in the areas of federal grants, honorific awards, journal articles, citations, conference proceedings, and book publications. In addition, the Faculty Insight and Faculty Expertise Portal tools compile data from Digital Measures in order to supplement faculty profiles.
There are three tools available to Baylor: the Comparative Benchmarking Portal, Faculty Insight, and the Faculty Expertise Portal. The Faculty Insight and Faculty Expertise Portal tools are currently in development and will be released to the University in Fall 2020.
