Science-Metrix celebrates 35 years of Canadian evaluation at the Annual Evaluation Conference in Ottawa

Published on July 25 2014

Science-Metrix is proud to continue to support the annual Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) conference. This June, several members of the Science-Metrix team attended the 35th Annual Evaluation Conference in Ottawa.

During this event, the busy Science-Metrix booth in the exhibit hall introduced participants to our evaluation and bibliometric services. Science-Metrix team members enjoyed this opportunity to exchange with other members of the evaluation community, and sharing some of our sample reports.

For the sixth consecutive year, Science-Metrix also sponsored the CES/Canadian Evaluation Society Educational Fund Student Evaluation Case Competition. On behalf of the entire Science-Metrix team, we would like to extend a hearty congratulations to team Peak Evaluation from the University of British Columbia, who took home first prize in the competition.

Science-Metrix also offered two presentations at CES 2014. For the first presentation, "Learning from each other: How MaxQDA can make you a better evaluator!" Science-Metrix evaluators demonstrated how this qualitative data analysis tool can be integrated into many types of evaluation projects, to handle large amounts of qualitative data over the entire evaluative process. For the second presentation, "Informed survey design - a novel method", Isabelle Labrosse described a new strategy employed to design a survey questionnaire to study the innovation of small and medium enterprises in Europe.

Looking to the future, Science-Metrix is pleased to be involved in planning the 2015 annual CES Conference, which will take place in Montreal.  We hope to see you there!
