ASEP Analytics was created as a software extension that provides analytical reports derived by a combination of queries and calculations from the data stored in the ASEP database, which cannot be displayed directly in the catalogue. It displays summaries and statistical data for CAS, for individual institutes and for individual authors. Each institute, its scientific teams and authors have access to web pages with the same graphic layout – menu, filters for setting the query (time period, document type, etc.) and the field of data.

Institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences are active in three distinct research areas:
- I. Mathematics, Physics and Earth Sciences,
- II. Life and Chemical Sciences,
- III. Humanities and Social Sciences
which are further divided into sections.
Examples of charts displayed in ASEP Analytics :
Number of document types in the CAS
Number of document types in research areas
Analyses of institutes, scientific teams (departments), and researchers
a) Summaries of publications by institutes or researchers in a selected period of time. Every record shows a reference to the Information Register of Research and Development results, which is a characterization of the result within the Czech Republic, a link to Web of Science database, DOI, R&D Council evaluation, or possibly a full text in the repository.
Record result (journal with impact factor article)
b) Statistics by Institute/Department/Author
The charts and tables can display a variety of indicators such as the number of results pertaining to specific types of documents, or journals with impactfactor, or applied outputs (patents, pilot plant, prototype, specialized map, industrial and utility model, methodology, norms, software) for a selected period of time. It is also possible to obtain diverse outputs and statistics, e.g. the average impact of an institute or the number of different types of results for each department within an institute.

c) Relevance of financial support
The results are obtained with financial support from the government budget and other financial sources. It is possible to show the results of the institutes for projects funded from the public budget, which appear in the Central Register of Research and Development projects database administered by the Research, Development and Innovation Council, inclusive of their rating by Council methodology, along with the results arising from institutional funding.
ASEP Analytics displays summaries and statistical data showing the results attained by the individual institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Evaluation of scientific results is a complex task, and the information, especially for a qualitative evaluation by ASEP Analytics, is being gradually expanded and perfected as required by the rules of evaluation in the Czech Republic. ASEP Analytics generates synoptic information that constitutes one of the tools for evaluation, particularly qualitative, of institutes and researchers by various subjects.
