Norwegian universities and university colleges have agreements with several academic publishers on access to scientific literature. Currently, several such agreements are being renegotiated with focus on Norway’s National goals and guidelines for open access to scientific articles. This maintains that all Norwegian, publicly funded scientific articles must be open access by 2024, and this goal must be reached without an increase in cost.
Current negotiations with certain publishers are not showing sufficient movement towards open access. Because of this, all universities and university colleges in Norway may lose access to approx. 2000 journals in ScienceDirect (publisher: Elsevier).
At the moment we don't know what or how much we lose access to.
