Clarivate Analytics, the home of the Web of Science and Journal Impact Factor, currently supports innovative research by individuals in the scientometric community through a thought leadership program, which gives researchers access to Web of Science data, as well as to scholarships such as the American Society of Information Science & Technology's Outstanding Teacher Award and Dissertation Proposal Award. Both awards were created in the early 1980s by Dr. Garfield. This new award will enable additional researchers to advance the field and build on Dr. Garfield's legacy.

The Scientific & Academic Research business of Clarivate Analytics continues to build on the early work of Dr. Garfield who developed the Science Citation Index, Current Contents and many other indexes in the sciences. By revolutionizing data-driven science, Clarivate is the leading provider of citation and innovation data and analytics to research organizations throughout the world.

"We are delighted to announce this award to mark our appreciation for Dr. Garfield, who was a visionary leader, colleague and friend to so many," said Jessica Turner, global head of government and academia at Clarivate Analytics. "Later this year, Clarivate will bring together the scientometric community to honor Dr. Garfield's legacy and to announce the recipient of its first award."

At least one prize will be given annually for the most innovative research in scientometrics, which can be applied to the field globally. It will be awarded to an early-career researcher (i.e., no more than PhD + 10 years) and based on the application criteria and on the researcher's needs. In addition to the award, Clarivate Analytics will provide the successful applicant with in-kind support and access to Web of Science data.

The online award application will be available starting in April 2017. Until that time, anyone interested should register to be notified when it becomes available, by sending an email to danielle.connelly@clarivate.com .
