Transfer of ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System):
The European Summer School for Scientometrics (esss) is entitled to award 3 ECTS points for participation.

ECTS points will be awarded to participants compliant with the following requirements:

BEFORE the course:

  • active participation in prior webinars (dates are announced in due time). Alternatively, participants can access the recorded sessions.
  • pre-reading of suggested material to an extent of approximately 15 hours (reading list is provided by e-mail)

Overall preparation time prior to the summer school has to comprise 20 hours.

The final versions are to be sent by e-mail to office@scientometrics-school.eu within two weeks after the end of the course at the latest.

The University of Vienna will then issue official ECTS-certificates for all compliant participants.

The Grading will be conducted according to the Austrian five-point scale:

International Grading Scale Austrian Grading Scale

C (satisfactory) 3
D (sufficient) 4
E (unsatisfactory) 5

The intelligent use of scientometrics, which is increasingly a must, requires rigorous training in the nooks and cranny of bibliometric methods. The esss is a timely response to this urging need, and the four organisations behind the initiative have demonstrated their professionalism in this field which is a guarantee that summer students will be exposed to sound practice and clever thinking.
