Quantitative Science Studies

Quantitative Science Studies is the official open access journal of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI). It will publish theoretical and empirical research on science and the scientific workforce.


ISSI Newsletter

The ISSI Newsletter is the most up-to-date source of information on items of current interest to members of the society. The aim of the ISSI Newsletter is to enhance communication among the society members and to help to bridge the gap between the daily flood of unfiltered information and the formal communication of scientific publishing. Instead of disseminating information in impersonal terms, the editors’ aim is to carefully select, bundle and present relevant information in an individual form along with contributions of common interest. Contributions are organised according to the categories editorial, letter to the editor, item about individuals, interviews, book review, literature alert, short communication, discussion paper, event announcement and report, and advertisement. Relevant information is collected by the editors, submitted contributions are moderated and reviewed by the board.

The ISSI Newsletter appears quarterly, and the latest number is available to all society members in a good standing. Older issues are archived and open to the broad public.
