Clarivate announces Elena Pallari as winner of the 2021 Eugene Garfield Award -

Clarivate Plc, a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, has named Elena Pallari, Department of Clinical Trials and Methodology, University College London, U.K., as the recipient of the 2021 Eugene Garfield Award for Innovation in Citation Analysis. The award was announced at the 25th International Conference on Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators (STI 2021) by Dr. Gali Halevi, Director of the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)™ at Clarivate.

Launched in 2017, the award recognizes early-career scientists developing innovative approaches to citation analysis that improve how the impact of scientific research is measured. This field of study, also known as scientometrics, was pioneered by Dr. Eugene Garfield, founder of the Institute for Scientific Information.

UCL postgraduate researcher Elena Pallari has been recognized for her research proposal to evaluate research outputs of the UK Medical Research Council Clinical Trials Unit over the last 20 years – during which time it published 2,548 papers, as indexed in the Web of Science™ – and to develop a framework to assess the impact of its methodology papers. Her work will also evaluate how progress in the design, conduct and analysis of clinical trials has improved clinical practice for patients. This type of work in health sciences is especially relevant amidst a global pandemic when clinical trials are conducted at enormous speed.

Pallari will receive $25,000 of unrestricted prize money and access to the Web of Science, the world’s largest publisher-neutral citation index. She will also be invited to collaborate with the current citation analysts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information, established in 1960 by Dr. Eugene Garfield.

The ISI focuses on the development of existing and new scientometric approaches. Scientometrics shapes the future of scientific discovery by helping governments, funding bodies and universities assess the impact of their work and investments, enabling them to allocate funding accordingly. It can also provide researchers with insights regarding the impact of their research, and the wider field.
