The JIBS User Group Committee are pleased to announce that the 2011 JIBS Student Prize was awarded to Andrea Ennis for her Masters Dissertation "Indicators of content: the role of word clouds in the creation of summaries".
An MSc student in the Department of Information Science at Loughborough University, Andrea examined the potential use of word clouds as content indicators in summaries of academic papers. Despite the small scale of her study her area of research was particularly innovative and, we think, has great potential for future development and practical application.
We hope that Andrea will be joining us on 24th February for our Workshop and AGM to give us a brief overview of her research. We will also make her dissertation available on our website very soon.
Details of the 2012 JIBS Student Prize will be posted on our website in early March.
