OP i Norden

Open Access is on the agenda in the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Council works on creating as good conditions as possible for free access to knowledge in the Nordic countries. 

This is done through the publications where everything (reports, analyses, etc. about Nordic conditions) is freely available via the common publication platform Nordpub. The publications are published and financed through the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Moreover, the Nordic Council of Ministers’ research organisation NordForsk works on creating greatest possible knowledge about the policies and guidelines of the Nordic countries.
