This post introduces the Open Edition of the CWTS Leiden Ranking, published today by CWTS in collaboration with the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative, Sesame Open Science, and OurResearch. The Leiden Ranking Open Edition is the first fully transparent university ranking.
In a new research project, we explore the interaction between misinformation and science on social media during COVID-19. This is part of the new research line on the role of science in societal debates of our Focal Area Engagement & Inclusion.
In September 2023, the city of Leiden in the Netherlands was the venue for not just one, but two scientometrics-related events: the CWTS Scientometrics Summer School and the STI 2023 conference. Our author attended both and reflects on his experience.
At the STI 2023 conference, an experiment was performed with a more open approach to publication and peer review of conference submissions. In this post, the conference organisers present an evaluation of this experiment.
The next EASST-4S conference will take place in Amsterdam in July 2024. CWTS colleagues are involved in 9 open panels, showing the diversity of topics studied at CWTS. In this blogpost, they give an overview of the different panels and the topics that will be addressed.
The new Focal Area Engagement & Inclusion at CWTS aims to create a more diverse, inclusive and engaging science ecosystem. This blogpost introduces our main vision and roadmap for the future. We welcome any person or organisation interested in these topics to reach out to us!
