Course Objective

Taking advantage of the participation of social scientists in the EMBRIC project (UPEM, leader for two tasks in WP5), this training session offers to the marine biology community an opportunity to discover state of the art scientometrics methods (based on social network analysis) and a to get free access to a powerful open access to the Cortext Manager platform dedicated to textual corpus analysis (www.cortext.net) which makes possible the characterisation of the research activities carried out within each research centre (node) in the EMBRIC and EMBRC networks. The objective of the course is to introduce participants to the uses of the CorTexT/RISIS platform, a research facility in S&T Studies proposed under the RISIS Infrastructure Project.

Building on preparatory work and data collection carried out within the framework of pp2 EMBRC, the participants in this one-day workshop will be mentored to be able to produce a series of original maps specifically designed for answering strategic issues regarding thematic priorities and patterns of collaboration.

Participant profile and course approach

Marine Biotechnology researchers interested in developing strategy-oriented thinking about the activities developed in the research center they belong to. No previous knowledge of scientometrics is needed, however we ask the participants to bring a laptop for taking part in the working sessions during the day. Participants will receive a step by step demonstration of how to use the CorTexT/Risis Platform: database upload and parsing, Terms extraction, Statistics and demography of entities, socio-semantic analysis. The training course will follow a learning-by-doing approach of using the various potentialities of the CorTexT/RISIS Platform, with practical session. 

More details will follow in early January, with a dedicated flyer.  However, for those interested in participating in this course, please send an email to  Douglas K.R. Robinson (douglas.robinson@esiee.fr) with subject heading “EMBRIC-RISIS Training Course”.
