Science-Metrix reaches out, Spring 2011

Published on May 5 2011

Science-Metrix is proud to support conferences and events that provide opportunities for community- and capacity-building in bibliometrics, evaluation, and science and technology policy. Science-Metrix recently sponsored two such events, one in Canada and one in the US.

Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) Conference

From May 2nd to 5th, Science-Metrix was a supporting partner of the 2011 CES/CESEF Student Case Competition and silver sponsor of the 2011 Annual CES Conference. During this conference, Frédéric Bertrand (Vice-President, Evaluation) and Michelle Picard-Aitken (Senior Evaluation Analyst) presented the following papers:

Picard-Aitken M., Goodyer M. and Archambault E. (2011)
Evaluation of the Collaborative Research and Development (CRD) Program: A discussion of the challenges and lesson learned associated with online surveys of companies and university students
Presentation to the 2011 Annual CES Conference, Edmonton, May 2, 2011.

Does research performance influence environment-related outcomes of countries? Lessons learned from a macro-level evaluation using bibliometric indicators and environmental performance indexes
Presentation to the 2011 Annual CES Conference, Edmonton, May 4, 2011.

American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

The following week, Science-Metrix sponsored the AAAS Forum on Science & Technology Policy in Washington DC (May 5-6, 2011).

Science-Metrix also had the pleasure of meeting science policy-makers, communicators and researchers at the Annual Meeting of the AAAS in Washington DC (Feb. 17-21, 2011). The Science-Metrix booth in the Exhibit Hall attracted much attention, as attendees came by to chat about our bibliometric and evaluation services and to discuss the recent release of the Ontology of Science and a map illustrating scientific collaborations between researchers from across the globe.
