Frederique Bordignon

Researcher at the Ecole des Ponts

Frédérique Bordignon, researcher at École des Ponts
Frédérique Bordignon is in charge of bibliometric indicators at École des Ponts and her research at LISIS is in the field of quantitative science studies, including the use of linguistic tools for the analysis of textual corpora.
Her research draws on both a 10-year experience in Scholarly Communication and collaborations with several LISIS members since 2015, and it is part of the LISIS GTC group (Digital Studies and Computational Social Sciences). She holds a PhD in linguistics (knowledge representation), she has an experience in the processing of strategic information in the field of sport, and a professional background in scholarly communication, mainly at École des Ponts. She produces analyses that challenge computational methods by applying them to heterogeneous corpora (abstracts, tweets, press articles, preprints…), often associated with bibliometric indicators. She focuses on the linguistic dimension of scientific texts, from lexical fields to co-occurrence networks, including the expression of disagreement or the detection/dissemination of scientific claims. Her research aims at contributing to studies related to publication practices, the construction and dissemination of knowledge, and the ways in which science is opened up.
Latest projects:
–       – In 2020, she co-hosted the exploratory project Cita&Re with Marianne Noël, funded by ISITE Future. It is a project combining computational linguistics, scientometrics and sociology of science, with the aim of examining whether or not retracted or corrected papers receive more critical citations.
–       This work has continued since 2021 with the ERC Synergy NanoBubbles project in the Corrections WP, and the Corpus and mapping WP. The aim is to study the mechanisms of correction of science and to identify when and why science fails to self-correct; taking nanobioscience as a case study, the project looks at scientific misconduct and questionable research practices.

Since 2021, she is a certified trainer in scientific integrity after having completed the 60 hour course provided as part of the VIRT2UE H2020 project, which promotes the development of good science and virtuous research practices.
