Dr. Michel Zitt
Michel Zitt, born 1947. Educational background: engineer degree, PhD in management sciences, doctorat d'Etat in economics. He first worked at INRA (National Institute for Agronomic Research) on invention and innovation processes, and later specialized in quantitative approaches of these processes, especially bibliometrics. In 1991 he joined the newly-founded OST (Observatoire des Sciences et des Techniques, Paris, devoted to S&T indicators in France) where he has been particularly involved in the development and application of science indicators. He is currently working at the IBIS scientometrics team of the Nantes LERECO/EDRA lab (INRA), and as a scientific consultant at OST.

And as most bibliometricians of their generation, Péter Vinkler and Michel Zitt too, started up their academic careers in other fields.
Michel Zitt Michel Zitt is a veritable team worker. He is at home in practically all relevant topics of scientomet-rics and although his oeuvre gives the impression of being created by a pioneer in our field, he actu-ally started his career in scientometrics surprisingly late.
Michel Zitt's professional background is in engineering. He holds a Ph.D in management science and a Docteur d'État (the highest doctoral degree in France) in economics. Thus he has early become acquainted with interdisciplinary research environments.
His first scientometric article dealt with the dynamic mapping of science based on a lexical approach and was published in 1991 in the journal Scientometrics. He continued this research by suggesting the combination with co-citation analysis, which is, in a way, one of the ancestors of all contempo-rary hybrid methods in network analysis of science.
Michel Zitt's research projects are characterised by both topicality and high standard.
Michel Zitt usually works in stable teams, regularly with his wife, Elise Bassecoulard, with Rémi Barré and more recently with Suzy Ramanana-Rahary, but occasionally in collaboration with other promi-nent scientists abroad, for instance, with Yoshiko Okubo, Valentina Markusova, Henry Small and Ronald Rousseau.
At present, Michel Zitt is senior researcher at INRA (Lereco Lab, Nantes, France) and advisor for sci-entometrics and R&D at the Observatoire des Sciences et des Techniques (OST, Paris, France).
The plethora of his projects and commitments might suggest that there is little time left for privacy and leisure. In his rare spare time Michel is painting, as he revealed in a recent interview4. He also loves literature and poetry and enjoys listening to music.
Péter and Michel, please accept my congratulations on this well deserved award.
