Welcome to the Nordbib project

Aiding Scientific Journals Towards Open Access Publishing

(or short NOAP - Nordic Open Access Publishing)

This is a Nordic library project directed towards aiding Nordic scientific journals to consider and implement an Open Access publishing model. The project aims at both creating a publicly available knowledge base for journals considering such an option, and at conducting actual establishing of Open Access journals or transitioning traditional journals to an Open Access model in order to gain practical experience with such a process.

The project consists of 6 sub-projects, called Work Groups or WGs:

WG1 software
WG2 business models
WG3 communications platforms
WG4 copyright issues
WG5 low volume printing
WG6 funding policies

8 Nordic institutions are currently partners in this project.
