Norway well on the way to full open access, say academics


More than 50 per cent of country's articles are estimated to be freely available

The Norwegian Association of Higher Education Institutions (UHR) has claimed that the country is on track to meet the government’s target of having all scientific articles financed by public funds openly available by 2024.

Writing in online magazine Khrono, Anne Kristine Børresen, Vidar Røeggen and Gunnar Sivertsen, all publication experts of the UHR, said that, by their calculations, the country is very far advanced in its mission to be fully open access. They said a significant proportion of articles from Norwegian researchers can now be read anywhere in the world without a subscription to scientific journals.
