Welcome to the 28th Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy (NWB2023). The Department of Communication and Learning in Science at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, will host the workshop in 2023.

Over the course of three days, October 11–13, 2023, you will have the opportunity to engage with experts from a variety of fields, including bibliometrics, research policy and library & information science. Its aim is to integrate bibliometric research with research policy, showcase the latest bibliometric research from the Nordic region and beyond, and strengthen connections between bibliometric research groups and their PhD students.

Updated news!
May 20, 2023: The abstract submission deadline has passed. We have received a total of 64 abstracts (48 oral and 16 poster presentations). We believe this is the highest number of submissions in NWB’s 28-year history. Notifications regarding the acceptance of the abstracts will be sent by June 21, 2023.

The Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy was initiated by Professors  Olle Persson and Peter Ingwersen in 1996, and has been held annually, rotating between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. This workshop has a long and proud tradition of providing a forum for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to discuss and explore the latest trends and developments in the field of bibliometrics. This workshop has served as a sustainable practice within the bibliometrics community for nearly three decades.

The workshop is open to participants from any country and conducted in English. There is no registration fee to attend, however, participants must cover their own accommodation and travel expenses.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 28th Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy and hope that you will find the event both informative and enjoyable.
