OA for Nordic arts and humanities

The Copenhagen University Library has announced that a technical infrastructure will be constructed permitting Open Access to research in the Nordic countries within the arts and humanities. Consortium members are, apart from the Royal Library, the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, Lund University, Sweden, University of Oslo, Norway, and Museum Tusculanum Press, Denmark.

“We believe that this will result in a number of advantages with respect to the electronic accessibility and visibility of the arts and humanities research area. The initial aim is to make Nordic research available through an Open Access online electronic full text archive. The archive will primarily contain research e-prints in the form of preprints, reprints, working papers, book chapters, conference reports, invited lecture manuscripts etc. The archive will be set up, maintained and promoted by Copenhagen University Library and consortium members. “

The project is sponsored by Nordbib as part of its financing programme (Work Package 2: Focus area on Content and Accessibility).
