"The 25th International Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators, STI 2020, will be held September 2-4 2020 in Aarhus, Denmark, in collaboration with the European Network of Indicator Developers (ENID). The conference is hosted by the Danish Centre for Studies on Research and Research Policy (CFA) at Aarhus University.
This edition will have a special focus on the interplay between the construction and use of Science, Technology and Innovation indicators in science policy and performance evaluations, and the potential effects they have on research integrity.
The conference will have a mix of traditional paper and poster sessions, as well as special track sessions where the presentation form can vary. The paper and poster call opens February 12; deadline for submissions are April 1, and notification is June 15. You can see all important dates under the calls or programme."
"Call for paper and poster submissions
We welcome contributions on the general topics covered by the conference, as well as contributions to open special tracks. This includes contributions on:
- Indicators of science, technology and innovation (e.g., systemic and behavioural effects of indicators; responsible use of indicators; measuring socio-economic impact; societal impact etc.)
- Research integrity (e.g., responsible conduct of research and the challenges from indicators; questionable or detrimental research practices; research misconduct; damaging behaviours by research institutions, sponsors, or journals; promoting research integrity etc.)
- Research evaluation (performance and incentives; diversity in evaluations; mixed-methods and case studies; responsible evaluation; mapping in evaluation studies)
- Open science (Open Access; Open data; Open reproducible research; Open science evaluation; Open science and the academic reward system; Open science policies; Open science tools etc.)
- Meta-perspectives (e.g. inter, trans- and multidisciplinarity; meta-science, science of science and research on research; foundations for STI studies; challenges and opportunities of STI studies; theories and foundations of indicators)
- Careers in science (e.g. global diversity in research; gender biases in science; inclusion policies; early career researchers experience; careers outside academia; mobility of scientists; career equity etc.)
- Science funding (e.g. funding effects; inequalities in funding; funding models; mapping funding landscapes and priorities etc.)"
