Call for Presentations

Bibliometric researchers in the Nordic countries have arranged annual Nordic workshops on bibliometrics since 1996:

1996 in Helsinki
1997 in Stockholm
1998 in Oslo
1999 in Copenhagen

2000 in Oulu
2001 in Stockholm
2002 in Oslo
2003 in Aalborg

2004 in Turku
2005 in Stockholm
2006 in Oslo

The general idea of the workshop is to present recent bibliometric research in the Nordic countries and to create better linkages between bibliometric research groups and their PhD students. The workshop language is English and the workshop is open to participants from any nation.
