12.10-13.10 Ben McLeish (Digital Science): International Collaboration and Protecting Research from Foreign Interference
Chair: Kim Holmberg
In January 2022 the European Commission released a Staff Working Paper on methods for protection Research & Innovation from Foreign Interference. Almost exactly a decade earlier, the European Commission also penned a similar document stating the value of international collaboration and cooperation in order for the EU to maintain its position in the R&I global order, and to meet sustainability and technological advancement goals. Other funders like the Wellcome Trust and UKRI have also featured mandates around compliance with international sanctions and responsible use of research within industry for many years. Both the fostering and development of international cooperation in research and the strategic protection of research and researchers have become increasingly important in parallel. In this session, Ben McLeish will explore, using real data, how institutions can both foster collaborations and analyse existing partnerships across funding, publications or patents, allowing the field of bibliometrics to inform important policy decisions around research activity.
13.10-13.15 Short break
13.15-14.15 Michael Poersch (Elsevier): Research in the Nordics – Contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals and Impact on national and international Policy Papers
Chair: Kristina Eriksson-Backa
Nearly all research publications from Nordic universities and research institutions can be mapped to one or more specific SDG. Sophisticated search strings identify a reasonable allocation based on the content of title, abstract and keywords. A benchmarking on various metrics underlines a leading role in Europe. But what is the impact beyond academia on policy papers? Do research findings go over and above the academic world and expand into papers of governmental and intergovernmental institutions or think tanks? Based on real world data the presentation will identify some hot topics of Nordic research finding their way into the sphere of politics.
14.15-14.30 Coffee/Tea break
14.30-15.30 Marko Zovko (Clarivate): Supporting the Open Access initiatives of Nordic countries
Chair: Khadijah Kainat
Open science is a system change, its accessible and collaborative approach is expected to accelerate research and discovery. As a producer of publisher-neutral resources, Web of Science pioneers new ways to support open science initiatives across the community by providing data and services. 20 years after the Budapest Open Access Initiative nearly 60% of publications Nordic countries published in the last 5 years are open access. We will deep dive into the world of open access publications and understand your current position in the open access landscape; identify areas where libraries can foster open access publishing; assess current publication strategy in the light of open science; optimize collection development by understanding citation patterns of your researchers and measure your progress towards open research goals to fulfill mandates.

9.00-10.00 Panel discussion: The advantages and limitation of the Nordic bibliometric indicator
Chair: Janne Pölönen and Vidar Røeggen
The Nordic bibliometric indicator is known as Den bibliometriske forskningsindikator (BFI) in Denmark, Julkaisufoorumi (JUFO) in Finland, Publiseringsindikatoren (NPI) or Tellekantene in Norway, and Norska listan or Norska modellen in Sweden. Denmark recently stopped producing the data and using it for performance-based funding. Norway is considering to stop using it for funding as well while continuing to collect data for the national research information system.
The use of other bibliometric data sources and indicators is increasing in academia. On this background, we ask: What are the disadvantages and advantages of the Nordic indicator compared to the alternatives? What are the consequences of possibly shutting down the Nordic indicator as a source of data and measurement?
The panel discussion includes experts on library and information science and bibliometrics from four Nordic countries:
- Birger Larsen (Aalborg University, Denmark)
- Susanna Nykyri (Tampere University, Finland)
- Dag Aksnes (Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education, Norway)
- Camilla Lindelöw (University of Borås / National Library of Sweden)
