Join an INSciTS Special Interest Group

INSciTS Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are member-led groups that provide a “home within a home” for INSciTS members to connect and collaborate with colleagues with shared interests in the SciTS field. SIGs help to build community around shared interests and aligned activities, enable collaboration throughout the year, advance key priority areas in the SciTS field, and create opportunities to engage with external groups. Currently active SIGs address: changing academic culture to foster team science (TS) success; creating incubator spaces for TS; training for TS; scientometrics, network analysis, and data visualization; and emerging careers.  To learn more, please click on the button below.
