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 22nd Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy (NWB’2017) was organized by Federation of Finnish Learned Societies, Helsinki University Library and University of Tampere Research Centre for Knowledge, Science, Technology and Innovation Studies. It was held at the House of Science and Letters, in Helsinki, on November 8-10th, 2017 with more than 140 participants.
In total, we received 53 submissions. After reviewing the submissions, the program committee decided which papers were to be presented orally and which as poster presentations. 29 papers were accepted as oral presentations. These, as well as 2 invited keynote talks and 16 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, Fredrik Piro and Jesper Schneider, for their contributions to the workshop, photographer Jussi Männistö and the volunteers, 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.
