    About the workshop

    The Nordic countries have arranged annual Nordic workshops on bibliometrics since 1996, alternating between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The general scope of the workshop is to present recent bibliometric research in the Nordic countries, to create better linkages between the bibliometric research groups and their PhD students, and to link bibliometric research with research policy. The workshop language is English and the workshop is open to participants from any nation.

    The webpage will be updated regularly with new information.
