August 2023 Data Update

  • Beta-2 release (May 2022) of the portal database with Clarivate data, which in this beta version solely includes publication metadata

Imported Data

  • Web of Science (WoS) publication data with Danish country code from 2011 to date (year and country as defined by the data provider)

  • Additional information from InCites for this set of WoS publication records

Data Enhancements

  • Danish affiliation names from the set of WoS publication records are mapped to Danish Affiliations in a standardized form (NORA names) and grouped in categories like Universities, Private Research etc. This is an ongoing effort

  • A re-organization of the Danish affiliations and -groupings were implemented in February 2023. New affiliation groupings added are: Artistic Higher Education InstitutionsBusiness AcademiesGovernmental InstitutionsNon-Profit Organizations and GTS Institutes
  • UN SDG Classification is added based on Clarivate’s UN SDG classification from InCites Citation Topics as they are tagged on the individual WoS record

  • AU/NZ FoR Classification is added based on Clarivate’s FoR classification from journals as they are tagged on the individual WoS record

  • OECD Classification is added based on Clarivate’s OECD classification from WoS categories as they are tagged on the individual WoS record

  • The Danish classification scheme DK Main Research Area is added based on a NORA mapping from WoS subject categories as they are tagged on the individual WoS records

  • Collaboration Countries are mapped into Collaboration Regions of analytical interest, like OECD, EU etc. Regions are in standardized form (NORA names)

  • Interlinking across all four databases (Matching Records in) has been implemented based on DOI-matching

  • Clarivate’s Open Access types are mapped to a standardized NORA OA terminology

  • Keywords are based on the Author Keywords as they are added on the individual WoS record

Analytics Functionality

  • Is being developed and will be added at a later stage

Imported Data

  • When harvesting/importing publication data we rely on the country code(s) the data provider relates to the publication records – this means:
    • Records with Danish affiliations, but no Danish country code are consequently not included in the NORA database
    • Records with Denmark as a country code, but without any explicit Danish affiliations are consequently included in the NORA database

Danish Affiliation Names

  • Mapping of Danish affiliation names to NORA standard names is primarily based on Clarivate’s normalization of these names in the Affiliation field (formerly Organization-Enhanced). If you think the normalization of your institution’s name variants could be improved – read more here on how you may work with Clarivate to do this 

    • This becomes explicit in the NORA names category ‘Hospitals’, because some Danish university hospitals, as of now, only are connected to a normalized university name variant in WoS. We are working with Clarivate to see how we may improve this  

  • Affiliations with country code Denmark, which in the mapping process are identified as falsely classified as Danish, will not be mapped to any Danish affiliation names or groupings


  • If more author names are connected to the same Author ID (eg. ORCID) by the data provider, we show the author name variant that occurs with the greatest frequency

Full Record View

  • Abstract is only displayed if the publication is Open Access

  • Direct link to an Open Access Version of a publication is not available in the Clarivate data
  • Funder and Publisher information is not displayed

Help and Guides

  • As we move along – and collect user feedback – more user guides, PDFs as well as videos will be added

Improving the Beta-2 release (May 2022)

  • Processing user feedback

  • Carrying out third party usability testing

  • Fixing bugs and serious usability problems 

  • Extracting and prioritizing ideas for improvements

  • Developing and testing improvements

  • Launching the Beta-3 version

Imported Data

  • Start reviewing the possibility of including patents from Clarivate
  • Start reviewing the possibility of including datasets from Clarivate

Data Enhancements

  • Enhance the mapping and normalization of Danish affiliation names

Analytics functionality
