Proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Scientometrics and Informetrics ISSI2019
The 17th International Conference of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI2019) is held on 2-5 September 2019 in Rome, and is hosted by the Sapienza University of Rome. It is a major event with participants from 44 countries from all global regions.
The conference includes a special STI Indicators Conference Track organized in collaboration with the European Network of Indicator Designers (ENID). In this way, ISSI2019 represents a first experiment to bring together the two
conferences in a particular year.
In a first round, around 420 submissions were made of full papers and research-in-progress papers. After an extensive peer review process, thoroughly conducted by over 200 reviewers, some 260 submissions were accepted for oral presentation, while the authors of another 80 submissions were invited to present their paper as a poster. Of these 80, about 60 per cent accepted this invitation. A second round of poster submissions was held, resulting in some 130 new poster submissions.
In the final acceptance decision, apart from the reviewer judgments, two additional rules were applied: for oral presentations of papers a one-presentation- per-presenter rule, and for papers and posters the rule that all contributions must be included in the conference proceedings. All in all, the Conference Proceedings contain 261 oral presentations of accepted papers, and 156 poster presentations.
