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. The 21st Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy (NWB’2016) was organized by Aalborg University (Copenhagen branch), in collaboration with University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen University Library. It was held at the University of Aalborg, in Copenhagen, on November 2-4th, 2016 with more than 100 participants.

In total, we received 37 submissions. After reviewing the submissions, the program committee decided which papers were to be presented orally and which as poster presentations. 19 papers were accepted as oral presentations. These, as well as 2 invited keynote talks and 12 posters, are presented as abstracts in these proceedings. The posters and oral presentation slides are also available for viewing and peer-feedback at figshare (with citable DOIs):

We would like to thank all authors for their submissions, the session chairs and the keynote speakers, Ronald Rousseau and David Budtz Pedersen, for their contributions to the workshop, photographer Balázs Schlemmer and the student volunteers, Annika, Halle and Lejla, for their diligent efforts during the workshop. Further, we would like to thank the sponsors for their generous financial support, without which the Nordic workshops could not be organised in their current form.
