Negotiations on journal access agreements

Norsk versjon: Nasjonale forhandlinger om tidsskrifter

Norwegian universities and university colleges have agreements with several academic publishers on access to scientific literature. Based on Norway’s National goals and guidelines for open access to scientific articles, these agreements are under renegotiation.
Update 23 April 2019: We have reached an agreement with Wiley and Elsevier. We are working on the details regarding the implementation of these agreements. Negotiations continue with the other publishers, Springer Nature and Taylor & Francis. 
NTNU do not renew their agreement with Elsevier. Because of this we must be prepared to lose access to scholarly articles from Elsevier’s journals. The University library have prepared for the situation. Researchers will continue to have the right to submit articles for publication, however.

Articles must be open access without increased costs

In the current subscription system, scientific articles are behind paywalls and we have to pay for reading them, including those written by scientists in Norwegian institutions. The Norwegian goals and guidelines states that all Norwegian, publicly funded, scientific articles must be open access by 2024, a goal that has to be reached without an increase in cost.
