Biography

Gregorio González Alcaide is a full professor at the Department of the History of Science and Library & Information Sciences, in the School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Valencia.

Having completed his PhD in Library & Information Sciences at the University of Valencia in 2010, Dr. González Alcaide has been teaching courses since 2009 on Bibliometrics, Research methods and techniques, and Information sources to students from the areas of social sciences and health sciences. He has led different teaching innovation projects to promote knowledge on bibliometrics and other social science methodologies along with skills in writing and academic communication. He has also worked to raise awareness on the importance of academic honesty, both among students and at the researcher level, to discourage behaviors like plagiarism and to foster respect for the ethical principles that must guide the research and publication process. Dr. González Alcaide regularly participates in specialized courses and post-graduate teaching related to processes for evaluating research activities.

His main line of research has focused on the study of scientific collaboration by means of bibliometrics and social network analysis as research methodologies. His studies have aimed to determine the extent of cooperative practices, structural properties, and the characteristics of scientific networks at different analytical levels (authors, institutions, and countries) and in different disciplines or areas of knowledge. He has also investigated cooperative practices as a process and researchers’ perceptions with regard to this phenomenon, combining quantitative and qualitative approaches based on surveys and interviews. Other lines of research have focused on identifying subject areas and intellectual structures (documents, reference authors, research groups) that have laid the foundation for the development of knowledge in different scientific disciplines. These studies have employed methodologies like analyses of citations, co-citations, bibliographic coupling, co-words, and research clusters. Specifically, his papers have characterized the development of research in the area of Library & Information Sciences.

In relation with the management of research activities, he has participated in the organization of different scientific congresses and is an editor at the journal Heliyon (Cell Press, Elsevier), in addition to collaborating regularly as a reviewer for prestigious journals like Scientometrics.
