Title:ScholarSip: Celebrate the last day of classes with fellow faculty and professional staff during the next ScholarSip event!
Date:Monday, March 19, 2018
Time:4:00pm - 6:00pm
Location:Academic Bistro
Campus:University City Campus
Categories:Libraries Events
Description:

ScholarSip provides an opportunity for members of the Drexel community to gather for conversation – along with a toast to the end of the academic term.

The theme of the 2017/2018 event series is Research Matters: Connecting Drexel to Global Scholarship. 

During each quarterly event, a distinguished Drexel professor will address this year’s theme by reflecting on how the dissemination of research through publication is critical to the development of knowledge in a particular field.

This year’s speakers have been selected from those Drexel researchers named in the top 1 percent by citations in their field by Clarivate Analytics’ 2016 Highly Cited Researchers list and include Yury Gogotsi, PhD; Ana V. Diez Roux, MD; and Gordon T. Richards, PhD.

To compile the 2016 list, Clarivate Analytics looked at highly cited papers published between 2004 to 2014 and identified authors whose papers rank in the top 1% by citations in each of its 22 main subject fields. This analysis named more than 3,000 researchers with global influence in 2016, including four Drexel authors who were recognized at last year’s annual Celebrating Drexel Authors Event.

This quarter, we are pleased to welcome our guest speaker

Ana V. Diez Roux, MD
Drexel University
Dean and Distinguished University Professor of Epidemiology
Dornsife School of Public Health

Dr. Diez Roux will address this year’s theme by reflecting on why and how dissemination of research through publication is critical to the development of knowledge in a particular field. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
