USF uses Academic Analytics to allow faculty to find each other, form research networks and compare our programs to our peer list of institutions. The Academic Analytics Database contains scholarly data on over 275,000 faculty members at over 400 US-based research universities. The data includes research grants, honorific awards, articles, books, conference proceedings, and more.
Academic Analytics (AcA) provides data for research/scholarly activity bench marking and discovery by collecting publicly available scholarly data (including publications, citations, and external funding) on individual faculty members, combining the data by Ph.D. program or medical specialty, and comparing it to equivalent information from similar programs in the same disciplines at other universities.
