Publishing agreements about open access

In the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers, we mark journals that is part of agreements with publishers about open access publishing.

If you are the corresponding author, and affiliated with an institution included in a publishing agreement, you can publish in most of the publishers’ journals without direct expenses.

Labelling of open access agreements

You will find journals included in a publishing agreement labelled with “A” for “agreement”. At the page of a specific journal in the Norwegian Register, you will find a drop-down menu (Vis [+])of institutions included in the agreement.

We differentiates between consortium agreements and institutional agreements to distinguish agreements negotiated by Sikt and agreements negotiated by individual institutions.

A journal might be part of both an institutional agreement and a consortium agreement. Sometimes the various agreements might show different publishers. The reason is that the journal has changed publisher and that the change has happened before the Norwegian Register has received new data about one of the agreements.

Institutional agreements

Institutional agreements are agreements entered directly by individual institutions and publishers, and they are not part of the consortium agreements negotiated by Sikt.

Use the form for institutional agreements to register such agreements. Also, use also this form to change or update the information about the agreements.

For questions about the institutional agreements, contact your institutional library.

Consortium agreements

Consortium agreements are agreements negotiated by Sikt. The Norwegian Register receives data about these agreements from Sikt. A journal might be marked with two consortium agreements, meaning that the journal is registered with two agreements with two different publishers. The reason is that the journal has changed publisher and that the change has happened before the Norwegian Register has received new data from Sikt.
