The explosion of research activity as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the use of text-analytics to extract the insights and intelligence necessary for ST&I policy & management – e.g., competitive technical intelligence, R&D management, research evaluation, etc. VantagePoint software was recently used by B. P. Cabral, et.al. to identify top experts for a survey in "What are the most promising treatments and vaccine candidates for COVID-19? A global survey of experts involved in virus research"(full-text of paper available) and by C.V. Fry, et. al. to conduct a network analysis in "Consolidation in a crisis: Patterns of international collaboration in early COVID-19 research" (full-text of paper available).
