Open Access Policy
NORRAG subscribes to the Open Access movement and the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities. Our belief is that dissemination of knowledge is a benefit for the whole of humanity and that knowledge should therefore be freely, widely and readily available to society, providing that proper attribution is given to the author of said knowledge.
One of NORRAG’s central aims, as an international network, is to participate in diversifying the production and dissemination of knowledge. This includes facilitating the production of its knowledge products, whether printed or online, into a range of languages additional to English. We encourage translation and open access of the NORRAG knowledge products.
