Webinar: Tribute to Loet Leydesdorff and Presentation of Special Issue of Quantitative Science Studies


Mon 7 Sep 2020 | 15:00 - 18:00 (CEST)
Online

event20200907

The new journal Quantitative Science Studies (QSS) has recently released a new special issue (see below) exploring the relation of QSS with neighboring fields, with contributions by renowned scholars working at the boundaries of QSS. This webinar will explore some of the issues raised in the special issue and will look ahead to the future of the field.

We also thought that this would be an ideal occasion to offer a tribute to Loet Leydesdorff for his contributions to various fields of science studies over almost 50 years, from his initial work on Dutch science shops in the 1970s to the Triple Helix dynamics, across a myriad of strangely beautiful scientometric blossoms. We warmly invite friends of STS, scientometrics and innovation studies and beyond to participate in this celebration!
