Short Description of the Organization / Department
The Science Studies Laboratory is an interdisciplinary research group at the University of Warsaw. Our work focuses on quantitative science of science, qualitative science studies, research policy and practice:

– we apply rigorous methodological approaches. All our research is transparent and replicable.
– we believe in open science. We strive to make our research results available to everyone.
– we work with practitioners. Conclusions and recommendations from our research change the way institutions operate.
