13th International Conference on Webometrics, Informetrics, and Scientometrics (WIS) and the 18th COLLNET Meeting 2017

The broad focus of this conference is on collaboration and communication in science and technology, science policy, quantitative aspects of the ‘science of science’, and the integration of qualitative and quantitative approaches in the study of scientific practices. The conference thus aims to contribute to evidence-based knowledge about scientific research and practices, which in turn may further provide input to institutional, regional, national and international policy-making around research and innovation.

  • Science Policy, Collaboration and History
  • Collaboration Studies for Science & Society
  • Collaboration, Knowledge Management & Industrial Partnership
  • Collaborative Bridge between Academic Research and Industry

  • Quantitative Analysis of S&T Innovations

  • Nature and Growth of Science and of Collaboration in Science and its Relation with Technological Output

  • Informetrics Laws and Distributions

B. Data Management

  • Data analytics and data mining
  • Open access management and its impact

C. Information Technology and Management

  • Information and Knowledge Measurement
  • Information Literacy Program
  • Technology & Innovations in Libraries and Impact Measurement
