CWTS B.V. is proud to introduce its newly developed course program. The course program consists of three courses targeted at professional users of scientometrics, including librarians, policy officers, and research managers at universities, funding agencies, and other research organizations. For PhD students CWTS offers the annual CWTS Scientometrics Summer School.

Bibliometric Data Sources and Indicators

This course provides an introduction to bibliometric data sources and indicators. The course covers the fundamentals that professional users of bibliometrics need to be familiar with. The course Bibliometric Data Sources and Indicators has different editions, offered on-site in Leiden, the Netherlands and offered online.

Visualising Science Using VOSviewer

The aim of this course is to give the participants a thorough introduction to science mapping, with a special emphasis on the VOSviewer software developed at Leiden University’s Centre for Science and Technology Studies. Participants are introduced to the main techniques for visualising science. Special attention is paid to applications in a research evaluation and research management context.

Scientometrics Using Open Data

Scientometric analyses are increasingly performed using open data, making these analyses more transparent, inclusive, and reproducible. The course Scientometrics Using Open Data provides an in-depth introduction to such open data, covering data sources such as Crossref, ORCID, OpenAlex, and others. CWTS organizes the course jointly with the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (COKI). It is offered online.
