This panel pays tribute to Dr. Eugene Garfield, one of the “fathers” of bibliometrics, former president of ASIS (1999-2000), and the founder of the ISI citation databases who passed away on February 25, 2017. In this panel, we intend to highlight his contributions to information science. The panelists are all well-known researchers who have known and worked with Dr. Garfield. Each panelist will highlight an aspect of Dr. Garfield’s contributions that has transformed science and scholarship, and how, in turn, their own work has been influenced by his contributions. The panel will be moderated by Judit Bar-Ilan and Dietmar Wolfram.
