SciVal Research Profiles (Formerly Collexis Research Profiles)
UT Health Science Center faculty members now have access to SciVal Research Profiles, a powerful tool for semantic searching and knowledge discovery. Research Profiles is an innovative tool to promote collaboration regardless of organizational affiliation. There are currently profiles for over 500 selected UT Health Science Center and partnering organizations researchers. Profile information is compiled from federal grant information included in the CRISP database and publication information from PubMed. Users are able to search for collaborators by concept, name or full text.

Team Science Toolkit
Developed by the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Science of Team Science (SciTS) team, the Team Science Toolkit is an interactive website, based on a wiki platform, where visitors can freely upload and download publicly available resources for the study and praxis of team science. Examples include measures and instruments to study team science, bibliographic entries, publications, and tools to support and facilitate team science approaches. The Toolkit also offers a number of ways to connect with colleagues. Click here for more details about the Team Science Toolkit.
