Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy
September 21-23, 2022 in Turku, Finland

Call for abstracts and submission

Participants who wish to present a research paper or a poster are kindly asked to submit a 250-word abstract to: We welcome novel ideas or work-in-progress of interest to a Nordic audience and beyond.


This year PhD students who wish to present at the workshop and that have submitted an exceptionally promising and/or interesting abstract can apply for a travel grant. We are offering two grants of up to 500 euros each to be used against travel and accommodation expenses of two PhD students. The decision will be made based on the submitted abstract by the members of the organising committee. Please indicate in your submission that you are a PhD student and you wish to enter the contest for a travel grant.

Papers will be presented orally at the workshop (ca. 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 lobby of the workshop site. Please indicate in the submission form whether you prefer a poster presentation or an oral presentation. However, due to limited time slots for presentations, we may suggest that paper submissions should be given as posters. In the evaluation of abstracts, we assess the topical relevance and innovative qualities, as well as how well-structured and easy to read the abstract is.

Presenters of accepted abstracts must register to the workshop and attend the Nordic Workshop on Bibliometrics and Research Policy in Turku, Finland, in person.
