InCites facilitates several views of collaborations (co-authored publications) within its interface that enable the user to identify and evaluate collaborations at various levels (country/region, institution, person). Any of the indicators described in this Handbook are available as subsets of any document set. For example, it is very simple to create an analysis such as that shown in Chart 3 to evaluate the performance of any collaboration. Furthermore, once the collaboration has been identified, it is straightforward to drill down to identify the individual people, subjects or papers that make up the collaboration.

However, InCites also includes pre-calculated indicators of collaboration which can be used for complementary performance indicators.
