Deadline extension: New deadline: 9 September.
You are invited to participate in the 23rd Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy, 8–9 November with an adjoining pre-workshop on the theme of ‘Bibliometrics in the Library’ taking place on 7 November at the University of Borås, Borås, Sweden.
Participants who wish to present a research paper or a poster are kindly asked to submit a 250-word abstract of their presentation. We welcome novel ideas or work-in-progress of interest to a Nordic audience and this year we especially encourage papers with a research policy perspective. You can offer either a paper or a poster. Due to limitations in the program, the scientific committee may suggest that paper submissions should be given as posters. Papers will be presented orally at the workshop (about 20 min.), while posters will be showcased in a poster booster session followed by a free-form discussion. The posters will be on display in the hallways of the workshop site.
We also welcome scholarly and professional papers on the pre-workshop topic ‘Bibliometrics in the Library’. Please indicate if you are interested in presenting at the thematic workshop.
Deadline for submission of abstracts is extended to the 9thof September 2018.
The authors will be notified of acceptance by the 30thof September 2018.
Please send your abstracts (in word or rtf format) to nwb2018[at]hb.se.
Participation in the workshop is free. Travel and accommodation have to be arranged and financed by the participants themselves. The registration page is available on the conference web page: http://www.hb.se/nwb2018.
