European Summer School for Scientometrics

Since 2015 I have been participating as lecturer at the European Summer School for Scientometrics (ESSS) and since 2017 I am member of the Steering Committee, representing EC3metrics SL as an external collaborator. The ESSS is a nonprofit consortium of the University of Vienna,  the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies – DZHW, the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and EC3metrics SL.


At ESSS we combine basic training on bibliometrics with seminars and presentations from worldwide reputed experts. Students attend seminars and have practical sessions in which they have to demonstrate the skills gained by doing a set of exercises, always supervised by expert bibliometricians. ESSS takes place annually touring between the cities of the institutional members of the consortium (Vienna, Berlin, Louvain and Granada). Each edition has a special topic to which a whole day of the school is devoted. Following I include the presentations of the seminars I have conducted:
