Wouters, Paul. See selected publications listed on the website of the Virtual Knowledge Studio: http://virtualknowledgestudio.nl/paul-wouters/paul-wouters-publications/
Paul Wouters (1951) is programme leader of the Virtual Knowledge Studio for the Humanities and Social Sciences, an institute of the KNAW. He is also professor of Knowledge Dynamics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, scientific director of the Erasmus Studio (a subsidiary of the VKS), and Visiting Professor of Cybermetrics at the University of Wolverhampton. Wouters is particularly interested in the design and analysis of new scholarly practices in the humanities and social sciences. Can we create novel forms of knowledge by making smarter or more playful use of information and information technologies? And what are the implications of digital research objects for the conduct of science and scholarship? He has written on the history of the Science Citation Index and its impact on the standards of quality in academic work. Presently, he focuses on e-research in the humanities and social sciences. (Wouter’s work is recommended by Kathleen Woodward.)
