Professor Marek Kwiek had an invited seminar, followed by a discussion, in SciencePo in Paris. His seminar was about:
“Global Academic Profession Studies: New Data Sources, Methodologies, and Approaches”.

The focus of the seminar was on global academic profession studies. How to study academic careers globally, using digital traces? How to collect and analyze new data? What is the future of academic profession surveys and interviews in the context of huge publication and citation datasets of the Scopus type? How to track individual academics (and their careers) for years and decades – and what the benefits of such longitudinal methodologies are? New approaches, trade-offs and dilemmas were discussed.
