17th International Conference on Scientometrics & Informetrics
The ISSI 2019 Conference will provide an international forum for scientists, research managers and administrators, as well as information and communication related professionals to share research and debate the advancements of informetric and scientometric theory and applications. The conference is organized under the auspices of ISSI – the International Society for Informetrics and Scientometrics
It will have a Special STI Indicators Conference Track on Challenges to the assessment of Science, Technology and Innovation. This track is organised by the European Network of Indicator Designers (ENID).
In this way, the current ISSI conference represents a first experiment to bring together the two conferences in a particular year.
The goal of ISSI 2019 is to bring together scholars and practitioners in the area of informetrics, bibliometrics, scientometrics, webometrics and altmetrics to discuss new research directions, methods and theories, and to highlight the best research in this area.
In the special STI Conference track, we will focus on the use of indicators in different contexts, ranging from understanding institutional, structural, and developmental processes to their use as analytical tools in knowledge management and STI policy decision-making.
