The submission date for the ISSI Student Travel Award has been extended to November 25, 2016. Please see details below.






The goal of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI) Student Travel Award is to facilitate the participation of a diverse student population in the meetings of ISSI. 


Eligibility. At the time of application, the student must be enrolled in an academic program.


Application. The student should submit a short statement (no more than 1000 words) detailing their interest in the field and the value they anticipate deriving from attendance of the ISSI conference.  The student should also submit one letter of recommendation and a current CV/resume. Applications should be received at least one year prior to the ISSI conference.


Selection. Several factors will be taken into consideration in the evaluation, focusing primarily on the mutual benefits to be derived for both the student and the society as well as the individual merit of the student. Geographic diversity will be considered in the selection process.


The evaluation committee will consist of a subcommittee of no more than four individuals, with one ISSI Board member serving as Chair. The Board will select at least one and no more than three individuals each year, depending on the applicant pool, location of the conference, and financial resources available.


Announcement. Awardees will be notified at least six months prior to the ISSI conference, to allow ample time for the student to arrange travel accommodations.


Award. The award will consist of up to €2000 to cover transportation and lodging for the individual. Conference registration and per diem will not be provided. Awardees should arrange their own travel and provide receipts to ISSI for reimbursement. 


Details for ISSI 2017: The 16th ISSI Conference will be held at Wuhan University, Wuhan, China from 16 - 20 October, 2017. The travel award committee for 2017 will consist of Kevin Boyack (chair), Sybille Hinze, Ismael Rafols, and Andrea Scharnhorst. Applications for the 2017 ISSI Student Travel Award should be submitted to Kevin Boyack at kboyack at mapofscience.com by November 25, 2016.
