 Unit for Science, Technology and Innovation Studies (TaSTI) organizes
the 13th Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy

in University of Tampere, Finland

Call for Presentations

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

This year's keynote speaker is Professor Ben Martin, Director of SPRU, 
University of Sussex. He will give a speech on /'Bibliometric research, 
indicators and science policy making' /

The participants who wish to present a research paper or a research idea 
are called for a max 200 word abstract of their presentation no later 
than August 4th, 2008. The workshop is also open to participants without 
a presentation. Final date for registrations is August 11th, 2008. There 
are no fees for participating in the workshop. Travel and accommodation 
have to be arranged and sponsored by the participants themselves.

Please send your abstract by e-mail as a pdf-file. Further questions can 
be addressed to workshop coordinators:
