As part of the company’s mission to promote diversity, inclusion and equity, this year Clarivate is actively seeking input from researchers in developing countries, and especially from Africa, the Middle East, Southeast and West Asia.

Having been a pioneer in automated indexing and information retrieval since 1955, Eugene Garfield (1925-2017) developed citation databases for science that changed the way researchers searched and evaluated scientific literature. Three decades before the invention of the World Wide Web, Dr. Garfield connected a vast amount of scientific knowledge to a network. With the creation of the first index of scientific citation, he revealed the power of citation – the connection between one discovery and another, which was literally a “science network”.

Now the Clarivate product, Web of Science indexes the content and citation network of the world’s leading scientific and scholarly journals, collections and books. It is the result of the continuous evolution and innovation of the Scientific Citation Index, which Garfield introduced in 1964.

Gali GaleviThe director of the Institute of Scientific Information, part of Clarivate, said: “In 2017, Clarivate founded the award on behalf of Dr. Garfield to recognize excellence in advancing our understanding of the impact of research and innovation.

“Dr. Garfield’s vision of supporting innovation in bibliometrics has been unprecedented. He has focused on supporting scholars who research and develop new analytical methodologies, indicators and metrics to improve our understanding of how the world’s most complex problems are addressed. Also an ardent supporter and teacher researchers are beginning careers around the world, and through the Garfield Award we look forward to honoring his legacy. ”
