Cassidy R. Sugimoto

Cassidy Sugimoto is Professor of Informatics at the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University Bloomington. She is also currently serving a rotation with the National Science Foundation as the Program Director for the Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) program. Sugimoto's research expertise is broadly situated in the domains of science policy, scholarly communication, and scientometrics. Simply speaking, she investigates the ways in which knowledge is produced, disseminated, and rewarded, with a particular interest in issues of diversity and inclusion. She is interested in broad dissemination and accessibility of her own research. To this end, she has edited and authored several books, the most recent of which--Measuring Research: What everyone needs to know--is a primer for those new to scientometrics. Her publication record is extensive and varied--including publication venues such as Nature, The Lancet, PLOS ONE, Social Studies of Science, JASIST, and Scientometrics. She regularly presents across the globe and her work is regularly covered by major press outlets, such as Nature, Science, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Guardian. Her work has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Institute for Museum and Library Services, and the Sloan Foundation. Sugimoto is actively involved in teaching and service and has been recognized in these areas with an Indiana University Trustees Teaching award and a national service award from the Association for Information Science and Technology. She is currently serving as President of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics. Sugimoto has an undergraduate degree in music performance, an MS in library science, and a PhD in information and library science, all from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

It is through and by means of education, many of us believe, that individuals can be provoked to reach beyond themselves in their intersubjective space. It is through and by means of education that they may become empowered to think about what they are doing, to become mindful, to share meanings, to conceptualize, to make varied sense of their lived worlds. It is through education that preferences may be released, languages learned, intelligences developed, perspectives opened, possibilities disclosed.
