Download publication

In this working paper, we have used national publication databases in the Nordic countries to compare research in social sciences and the humanities in the higher education institutions. The findings are based on a data material that does not meet the same standards as the data used in the new NordForsk report Comparing Research at Nordic Higher Education Institutions – Covering the years 1999-2014, where Nordic higher education institutions are compared based on publication data from Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science.

The results documented in this short report, are of an exploratory nature, and should be interpreted and cited as such as well.
