Data-centric Methods for Studying Scholarly Communication

Main collaborators: Chaoqun Ni (Simmons), Cassidy Sugimoto (Indiana), Daqing He (Pitt),  Wei Jeng (Pitt)

Science largely affects the health and well-being of the society. Scientific research produces massive formal and informal scholarly activity data to understand and foster the process of science itself. I have a strong interest in using data-centric methods to study scholarly communication and academic information access. I maintain close collaborations with researchers in the field of scholarly communication and scientometrics.
