Sept. 7th: Tribute to Loet Leydesdorff and Presentation of Special Issue of Quantitative Science Studies

Dear all,

it is my pleasure to announce a
Webinar: Tribute to Loet Leydesdorff and Presentation of Special Issue of
Quantitative Science Studies

See details:

Wed 7 Sep 2020 | 15:00 - 18:00

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 Dutchscience 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

qualitative and quantitative science studies
