CALL FOR THE INTERNATIONAL "DEREK DE SOLLA PRICE AWARD" NOMINATION 2011

The Derek de Solla Price Award is the premier international award of excellence in scientometrics. It is awarded to an individual in recognition of excellence through outstanding, sustained career achievements in the field of quantitative studies of science and their applications. Established originally in 1984 by Tibor Braun and the publishers of journal of Scientometrics to honor the memory of Derek John de Solla Price, one of the founders of scientometrics, the Price Award has been awarded 15 times during 1984-2010. It is sponsored by the Publisher of the journal. The Award has no monetary value. The Derek Price Medal Award (DPMA) comprises an engraved bronze medal and certificate.

The previous awardees of the DPMA are:

1984 E. Garfield
1985 H.J. Moravcsik
1986 T. Braun
1987 H. Small, V. V. Nalimov
1988 F. Narin
1989 J. Vlachy, B.C. Brookes
1993 A. Schubert
1995 R. K. Merton, A. F. J. van Raan
1997 B.C. Griffith, J. Irvine & B. R. Martin
1999 W. Glänzel, H. F. Moed
2001 L. Egghe, R. Rousseau
2003 Loet Leydesdorff
2005 P. Ingwersen, H. D. White
2007 Katherine W. McCain
2009 P. Vinkler, M. Zitt

The Derek Price Medal Award 2011 (DPMA-11) will be presented at one of the 2011 conferences of the field.

Nominations of worthy candidates for DPMA-11 are widely solicited from the international community of practicing scientometricians and may be initiated by individual colleagues or their institutes including the members of the Editorial Advisory Board of the journal. There are no restrictions with respect to age, gender, nationality or other to who may be nominated among those whose achievements fall within the guidelines of the Derek Price Medal Award. A copy of the complete guideline can be obtained from: Professor Tibor Braun, the Editor-in-Chief of the Scientometrics (Email: braun@mail.iif.hu).

It is the responsibility of the nominator to prepare a complete, comprehensive and convincing statement of the outstanding achievements and contributions to the field that deserve of recognition through this award. There are no special forms for nomination. Each nomination, to be considered complete, must comprise: a signed nomination letter and a concise but comprehensive 500-1000 word citation stressing the candidate's outstanding and sustained contributions to scientometrics. The nominator must ensure that all of these materials are included in the above sequence in a single file prior to sending it. It is preferable to use Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format but MS Word (.doc[x]) and Rich Text Format (.rtf) might be used as well. Additional material will not be considered by 2011 Derek Price Medal Selection Panel (DPSP-11). The nominations will be considered on their scientific merit, based entirely on the strength of the documentation provided, by DPSP-11 which will not otherwise research the background of the nominee. Only one nomination per candidate will be accepted by DPSP-11. The decision of DPSP-11 will be considered final by all parties and may not be appealed or reconsidered, such as on the basis of supplemental documentation.

In order to harmonize the presentation of the complete CV of the candidates, you are requested to follow the following format.

1. The candidate
The head of the nomination is formed by the complete name (incl. titles), affiliation and address (incl. email) of the candidate.

2. Motivation
The first part of this section is a concise but sound and meaningful motivation, in which the nominator should explain why he/she considers the candidate worth to be awarded the DPMA. The recommendation should briefly summarise the candidate’s major merits focussing on relevant achievements in research, education, organisation and communication from a non-profit perspective. Commercial aspects are not relevant for awarding the Price Medal. This statement has ideally 300–500 words; it should be followed by a more detailed presentation of the candidate’s contributions to the fields of quantitative studies of science organised as follows.

2.1. Research activity
The candidate’s main achievements in academic research should be described. It should be convincingly explained how the candidate has shaped research topics in our field. The description – organised by topics – should be accompanied by short lists of the most important publications in the concerned subjects.

2.2. Education
Evidence should be given of the candidate’s role in the training and education of a new generation of experts in our field. This includes, among others, teaching activities at universities, summer schools as well as supervision of master and PhD students and the publication of text books in the field of quantitative science studies.

2.3. Organisation and communication
This issue comprises all activities concentrated on the institutionalisation of our field such as organisation of conferences, the edition of proceedings and special issues in journals, launching scientific journals and research programmes. Functions in editorial boards and academic organisations also belong to this section.
Nominators should also report if there is evidence of strong communication and interaction with scientists in other communities promoting our field and report the candidate’s social impact and visibility in the public.

You could include any other item which is worth noting but not mentioned above specifically.

This call for Derek Price Medal Award 2011 (DPMA-11) nominations can and should be communicated immediately to colleagues who are active in the field to encourage them also to nominate worthy candidates.
Nominations including all materials must be received in Budapest by Wednesday, 15 December 2010. The complete nomination package should preferably submitted in a single file by e-mail directly to Professor Tibor Braun (braun@mail.iif.hu). An acknowledgement of the receipt of the package will be sent to the nominator. The decision of DPMA-11 will be announced by 15 March 2011.
