The QSS group does research in the fields of bibliometrics and scientometrics, with a special emphasis on applications in research management and science policy. Together with his colleague Nees Jan van Eck, Ludo has developed two software tools for the analysis and visualization of bibliometric networks: VOSviewer and CitNetExplorer. Ludo is coordinator of the CWTS Leiden Ranking, a bibliometric ranking of major universities worldwide. In addition, Ludo serves as Editor-in-Chief of Quantitative Science Studies.
Quantitative Science Studies editorial board extension
We are delighted to welcome four new colleagues to the editorial board of Quantitative Science Studies: Dar-Zen Chen (National Taiwan University), Li Tang (Fudan University), Liying Yang (National Science Library, Chinese Academy of Sciences), and Lin Zhang (Wuhan University). These colleagues were selected for their expertise and significant contributions to the field. In addition, we want the editorial board of Quantitative Science Studies to be representative of the scientific communities that it serves. Given the strong contribution of scientometric research from China and Taiwan, it was essential to include more representation from these countries in the editorial board of Quantitative Science Studies. We look forward to working together with the new board members!
