Workshop on:
“Methodological Issues in Using Curricula Vitae for Research Evaluation and
Science Policy Analysis” ISSI Conference, Madrid , June 28th 

Call for papers and presentations 

 A wealth of information is provided in most curricula vitae (CVs).
Recently, research studies have demonstrated the utility of these data for a
wide range of applications. Currently, policy-makers in Brazil , Spain , the
United States , New Zealand and Argentina (among others) have begun to
collect CVs for the express purpose of research evaluation or science policy
analysis. Moreover, a second generation of CV studies has recently begun,
using more powerful analysis tools and more comprehensive data. 

Despite theoretical and methodological progress, the newness of CV analysis
implies that many technical problems remain to be solved. For example, the
coding of the information and its entry into a database is not at all

We invite authors to submit short papers (maximum 2000 words) or
presentations that contribute to the methodological discussion and progress
in the use of CVs as a source of data. The workshop will particularly focus
on assessing the current state-of-the-art in this recent and rapidly
evolving field of inquiry. Substantively, the research focus will especially
emphasize the use of CV's for research evaluation, analysis of career
trajectories, assessing the impacts of grants and grants on researchers'
productivity, collaboration, and mobility. 

 Submissions: Please send your contributions to Barry Bozeman (email:
<mailto:bbozeman at> bbozeman at ) by March 25th. Submissions
