Join us for a WICI Webinar on Wednesday, January 6th @ 2 p.m. via Webex.

Mapping exercises are increasingly important for information organizational strategy and assessing impact; this is as true for research institutes like WICI as it is for large institutions. In this talk, Jinelle Piereder, PhD Candidate in Global Governance at Balsillie School of International Affaris, will draw out key insights from her forthcoming report—Mapping Canadian Complex Systems Scholarship: A Bibliometric and Network Analysis—including the thematic clusters of WICI member research, an evaluation of several bibliometric and network analysis tools, and the challenges around identifying (and measuring the impact of) complex systems research and scholars. Jinelle will also provide a tour of several interactive databases, reports, and maps so attendees can engage directly with the data and results of the project. This will also be an opportunity for participants/attendees to ask questions about the project results and discuss its recommendations to WICI.
