The Institute for Scientific Information

Fostering the scientometric community through research and collaboration

Foundational past, visionary future.

The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) builds on the work of Dr. Eugene Garfield – the original founder and pioneer of information science. Named after the company he founded – the forerunner of the Web of ScienceTM – ISI was reestablished in 2018 and serves as a home for analytic expertise, guided by his legacy and adapted to respond to technological advances.

Our global team of industry recognized experts focuses on the development of existing and new bibliometric and analytical approaches, whilst fostering collaborations with partners and academic colleagues across the global research community.
