Assessment and publishing

Research papers will normally be assessed by three anonymous and independent peers. Papers can be anonymized but this is not required. Accepted papers will normally be published digitally in the NOKOBIT series (e-ISSN 1894-7719), currently published by the Bibsys Open Journal Systems. The accepted publications count at credit level 1 in the Norwegian Register for Scientific journals.

We require the following for publication in the conference report:

  • Final version is submitted within the deadline and in the correct format
  • At least one of the authors register at the conference and presents it here

A submitted manuscript can be refused by the programme committee without being sent for peer review. This applies if the manuscript has obvious deficiencies, making peer review meaningless (i.e., plagiarism, the work has been presented elsewhere, no scientific contents of a topic far out of the area of NOKOBIT). In cases of plagiarism or scientific dishonesty (I.e., plagiarism or autogenerated gibberish), the rejection and its reason will not only be covered to the submitter, but also, potentially, to the institution where (s)he is employed, and also to those being plagiarized.

Format and submission

NOKOBIT only invites full paper contributions this year. Full papers can be written in a Scandinavian language or in English. All contributions have to be original and not published or under review elsewhere. A paper should be max 14 pages.

Conference presentation

Accepted papers must be presented at the conference. The author must be prepared to present the paper in English if there are people in the audience who do not understand Scandinavian languages.
