Section Description

This graduate course in scientometrics will focus on bibliometric techniques. It will also feature invited lectures in history of science, sociology, and statistics. Beyond reviews and discussion of the research literature that uses bibliometric techniques, student teams will be required to design and execute a research project, and generate publishable findings. Emphasis will be placed on (i) creating an interdisciplinary environment where questions and interpretation are considered and students with relatively weak programming skills are not disadvantaged (ii) the use of open source computing tools. Students will be evaluated according to their level of participation, their presentations, and the quality of their draft and final reports. Instructors will engage with interested students even after the course to submit and publish research findings in respected venues.
