Norway’s First Green Open Access Mandate; Planet’s 60th

Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services (NORWAY* institutional-mandate)

Institution’s OA Eprint Archives

Institution’s OA Self-Archiving Mandate

Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services (Nasjonalt kunnskapssenter for helsetjenesten, NoKC) adopted an Institutional Policy for Open Access to Scientific Publications, November 25, 2008.

All scientific publications by NoKC research staff “must” be deposited at the time of acceptance in Helsebiblioteket’s Research Archive (HeRA), the new institutional repository launched by the NoKC health library (Helsebiblioteket). For each deposit, HeRA will release as much as it can as soon as it can. For example, HeRA will respect publisher embargoes, but will release OA metadata during the period when the full-text may be embargoed.
