Drexel College of Computing & Informatics PhD in Information Science student Jiangen He was recently awarded the 2019 Eugene Garfield Doctoral Dissertation Scholarship.
The purpose of the scholarship is to foster research in informetrics, including bibliometrics, scientometrics, webmetrics and altmetrics by encouraging and assisting doctoral students in the field with their dissertation research. As part of the scholarship, He received a $3,000 grant to support his participation in the 17th International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics Conference (ISSI2019) held Sept. 2-5, 2019 in Rome, Italy.
At ISSI2019, He will present a paper co-authored with his advisor, CCI Professor Chaomei Chen, PhD, on “The Citations of Papers with Conflicting Reviews and Confident Reviewers” as the special Eugene Garfield Doctoral Dissertation Scholarship Lecture. This forms part of his dissertation work that focuses on the development of quantitative and qualitative approaches to the study of how science advances, especially through machine learning, visual analytics, and predictive analysis.
"I am very pleased and honored to receive the 2019 Eugene Garfield Doctoral Dissertation Award,” He said. “I am always inspired by exploring and integrating new avenues in research. The award is a great encouragement for me to do so. I will continue developing quantitative and qualitative approaches to the study of how science advances, especially through machine learning, visual analytics, and predictive analysis. I would like to share this recognition with my advisor Professor Chaomei Chen at Drexel University for his excellent advising and inspirational support. He is also my scientific role model because he always has a passion for science and ambition to make nontrivial contributions. I also wish to thank the award committee, the Eugene Garfield Foundation, and ISSI for their efforts to support doctoral research in our field.”
Previous to pursuing his doctorate at Drexel, He earned a master’s in information science from Wuhan University and a bachelor’s in business administration and management and computer science from Nanjing University of Technology.
The Eugene Garfield Doctoral Dissertation Scholarship is sponsored by the Eugene Garfield Foundation with the cooperation of the Chemical Heritage Foundation, and is administered by the Board of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI).
