21st Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy, Copenhagen, November 3-4, 2016

About the workshop

Initiated by Professors Olle Persson and Peter Ingwersen, bibliometric researchers in the Nordic countries have arranged annual Nordic workshops on bibliometrics since 1996. The general scope of the Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy 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.
