Bibliometría o Barbarie

Friederich Engels dijo una vez: ‘La sociedad capitalista se halla ante un dilema: avance al socialismo o regresión a la barbarie.’ … Hemos leído y citado estas palabras con ligereza, sin poder concebir su terrible significado. … Así nos encontramos hoy, tal como lo profetizó Engels hace una generación, ante la terrible opción: o triunfa el imperialismo y provoca la destrucción de toda cultura … o triunfa el socialismo.

La #iniciativaBoB surge de la curiosidad y las ganas de innovar y experimentar de Daniel Torres-Salinas, Wenceslao Arroyo-Machado y servidor. El objetivo es crear distintas fuentes de recursos para la comunidad hispanohablante interesada en evaluación científica y bibliometría. Todo queda centralizado en la web:

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.

Presentations

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:
