I am the founding editor and the Editor in Chief of Information Visualization, published quarterly by SAGE. I am also the founding editor and the Specialty Chief Editor of Frontiers in Scholarly Metrics and Analytics, to be launched soon as an open access journal by Frontiers. I am the author of several books, including The Fitness of Information: Quantitative Assessments of Critical Evidence (Wiley, 2014), Mapping Scientific Frontiers: The Quest for Knowledge Visualization (2nd Ed.)
