Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce registration is now open for the fully online course on Bibliometrics and Scientometrics for Research Evaluation. This course is provided by Leiden University's Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) in collaboration with the Galter Health Sciences Library at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine.

The previously in-person course has been revamped! Take note of the reduced registration rate for the online course. The course is now held over 4 days, from 9 - 11 am (CT) and 12 - 2 pm (CT) each day. Additionally, each morning begins with an optional 8:30 am (CT) "Ask Me Anything" session to take advantage of the expertise and guidance of our experienced instructors.

Location: Online

Dates/Time: November 9 -12 (Monday - Thursday)

After completing the course, you will be able to:

*         Understand and interpret a wide range of publication- and citation-based statistics;

*         Use the VOSviewer software developed at CWTS in a proficient manner to create your own professional bibliometric visualizations; and

*         Reflect critically on proper and improper use of bibliometric and scientometric information in the evaluation of scientific research
