LIMITED to 30 Seats

The Science of Science (Sci2) Tool is a modular toolset specifically designed for the study of science. It supports the temporal, geospatial, topical, and network analysis and visualization of scholarly datasets at the micro (individual), meso (local), and macro (global) levels.

This workshop will provide an overview of the tools available in Sci2. Participants will also be able to follow along with several sample workflows and datasets, including discussion of data gathering, preparation, and cleaning. Individuals with existing datasets that they would like to use with Sci2 are encouraged to contact the instructor ahead of time.

Sci2 is an open source tool, freely available for download at http://sci2.cns.iu.edu. Development is supported in part by the Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center and the School of Library and Information Science at Indiana University, the National Science Foundation, and the James S. McDonnell Foundation.
