If you are seeking someone who is the top expert in the field to join your team, the Scholar Sourcing filter is where you want to start.
This feature allows you to generate data from academic platforms such as Google Scholar, ResearchGate, and Microsoft Academics. It also includes platforms concentrated on specific subjects, including arXiv, Zenodo, and Aminer.
Scholar sourcing is a great tool if you are looking for professionals with strong research backgrounds.
Oftentimes, recruiters spend hours on different websites looking for different publications of a particular candidate in one area. Now, Hiretual saves all that time and effort to bring all the publications and journals together, organized in different topics.
Why Scholar sourcing?
Having the knowledge and research on what the candidates have academically accomplished and published will help you strengthen and create more meaningful communication and connection with the candidate. They will likely be very impressed that you recognize their research papers or patents since it’s something they’re proud of. Ultimately, this can help you land a good quality and long-lasting hire. Knowing what the candidate is passionate about in addition to their experiences is going to be the key to your business hiring success in the long term.
Locate the Scholar Sourcing filter from the column on the left side of the Hiretual AI Sourcing page. To start, click on the checkbox on top to confirm the range of your talent pool.
You can leverage this filter in combination with all other AI sourcing filters such as Mandatory skills, Diversity, Locations, or Educational Backgrounds.
You can look for the Topics that you want to search for: Hiretual has 300+ topics for you to choose from. The topics range from social sciences, humanities, to more scientific and IT focuses such as AI, machine learning or mechanical engineering. We’re continuously looking to expand the topics to cater to all industries.
To further narrow down your search, you can input any Publication/Patent keywords. This will be especially helpful if you already know the exact candidate persona you’d like to build.
Additionally, you can use the Conference/Journal filter to look for any publications that are influential to the field you’re looking for.
If you’d like to look for candidates who have published papers in journals or presented at conferences, you can also specify the information under this filter.
If you already have the candidate names in mind that you wanna search, you can put their names into the Authors filter. You’ll be able to search for candidates who have collaborated with other people and see more information about their experiences.
Citations filter helps you locate the best-ranking candidates in the field. You can leverage this filter if you want to distinguish the great ones from the good ones.
In addition to Citations, you can also select from the Index scores - they help to measure the productivity and citation impacts of a specific scholar.
You can choose from the range of numbers below the text bar. Similar to the case of Years of Experience, if you are looking for candidates with a citation number between 100-1000, you need to put down both “100-500” and “500-1000” tags.
The h-index indicates that h number of the person’s published papers have been cited at least h times. For instance, if a candidate’s h-index is 5, it means that the candidate has published at least 5 papers and each paper has been cited at least 5 times.
The i10-index reveals the number of the candidate’s published papers that have been cited 10 or more than 10 times.
Both the indexes are good indicators of the candidate’s productivity and impact in the field. But you should be open-minded that there is no single definition of a “good” citation index number, as the research conditions vary in different fields.
As the academic research fields keep evolving with time, we added the filter of Publication Dates. This helps you find candidates who have the most recently published academic papers. Also, it helps to assist your needs to find papers published during a particular period of time.
