Abstract
Eugene Garfield was born in 1925, United States. He is a world-wide known American scientist. He is also one of the founders of bibliometrics and scientometrics, an art lover, a multilinguist, an entrepreneur, a musician and a prolific author. Garfield is mostly known around the world for ISI. Thanks to ISI, created by Garfield, researchers from all disciplines have been benefiting from a more systematic, faster, objective, interdisciplinary and extensive system while carrying out their researches and this index has enabled them to track down the origins of a scientific idea and led to creation of other information retrieval algorithms.
