12th July - How has the concept of being "citable" evolved?

Registration Closed

A replay for this webinar will be made available shortly

Wednesday 12th July 2017 – 14:00 BST, 15:00 CEST, 9:00 EST

When the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) first released in 1975, the concept of being “citable” was introduced in the context of assessing a journal’s performance impact, specifically the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) metric.  How has the concept of being ‘citable’ evolved since then?

Paul Wouters, Director of the Centre for Science and Technology Studies and Professor of Scientometrics at the University of Leiden, will provide an authoritative perspective on how being ‘citable’ has evolved over the last few decades, in part as a consequence of the Web of Science, and in part based upon developments in the increasing importance placed by funders of research as well as university administration, on the measurement of research impact.

This educational webinar is being brought to you by London Info International in partnership with Clarivate Analytics with the kind cooperation of Paul Wouters from the University of Leiden. It will be moderated by Philip Ditchfield.

20th July - What makes a world class university?

View the presentation

Thursday 20th July – 10:00 EST, 15:00 BST, 16:00 CEST

In this webinar Dr Jamil Salmi poses the question What makes a world class university?

The importance of tertiary education for economic growth and competitiveness is increasingly recognized not just for middle-income and advanced countries, but also for low-income ones.  Access to a world-class curriculum helps develop a skilled and flexible labour force that can positively influence productive activities by creating, applying and spreading new ideas and technologies.  Research universities are emerging as the central institutions of the 21st century knowledge economies.

In this context, the presentation will start by offering an operational definition of a world-class university. It will then outline and analyze possible strategies and pathways for establishing such universities.  Finally it will share lessons of experience based on recent work with countries and institutions that are keen on establishing world-class universities, identifying in the process some of the challenges, costs, and risks associated with these attempts.
