Drexel Libraries Announces 2017/2018 ScholarSip Details
October 4, 2017
The Drexel University Libraries is pleased to announce the theme for the 2017/2018 ScholarSip event series: 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.
2017/2018 Event Schedule:
- December 11, 2017: Yury Gogotsi, PhD, Distinguished University and Charles T. and Ruth M. Bach Professor, Materials Science & Engineering, College of Engineering
- March 19, 2018: Ana V. Diez Roux, MD, Dean and Distinguished University Professor of Epidemiology, Dornsife School of Public Health
- June 11, 2018: Gordon Richards, PhD, Professor, Department of Physics, College of Arts & Sciences
Additional event details will be announced over the coming weeks, including registration information and details on how you can attend in person or view a live broadcast of the event online.
Now in its seventh year, ScholarSip is an annual event series hosted by the Drexel University Libraries that seeks to nurture Drexel’s intellectual life and cross-campus community through informal gatherings where faculty and professional staff exchange ideas sparked by greater awareness of Drexel’s interdisciplinary research. Each event includes social time to build acquaintances and a short “food for thought” presentation from a member of the Drexel community.
