of the rslis & the issi

In 2010 the Royal School of Library and Information (RSLIS) and the International Society of Scientometrics and Informetrics (ISSI) compiled “a festschrift in honour of Peter Ingwersen” on the occasion of his retirement.

In addition to the 3 editors no less than 49 authors dedicated an article to Peter and a further 36 congratulated him on the last page.


Here are the editors' words on the occasion of publishing it in print and online on the ISSI website:

“With this Festschrift we wish to honour Professor Peter Ingwersen on his retirement from the Royal School of Library and Information (RSLIS) and concomitant appointment as the first Professor Emeritus at the Royal School in summer 2010.

The Festschrift has been published and printed by the RSLIS and is made available here for the general public in a slightly extended electronic version under the auspices of ISSI.”
