How can I find metrics for a department or research center, rather than one researcher?
While we do not have any "out of the box" tools available for department or research-level metrics, Web of Science and Dimensions can be used to collect metrics for works by multiple authors for further analysis..
What department-level metrics can be pulled from Web of Science?
Because all author affiliations are indexed in Web of Science records, you can use the Address field to search down to the department, division, or center level. How well this will work depends on:
How do I search Web of Science by department or center?
Change the search field to Address, then search diego SAME jolla SAME [abbreviated name for department or center].

What department-level metrics can be pulled from Dimensions?
Dimensions does not offer a department or center-level search filter, just researchers and research organizations. However, with a little time you can create a multiple researcher search (Researcher A or Researcher B or Researcher C) and save the search. Make sure that you are on the campus network, protected wifi, or VPN to access Dimensions Plus, and that you are logged in to save searches. Here's a sample search for most of the faculty in the UC San Diego Bioengineering Department.
