ERIH PLUS is now a service under the Directorate for Higher Education and Skills

2021-07-01: The Directorate for Higher Education and Skills was established on 1 July 2021, under the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research. The directorate is a result of the merger of the Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education (Diku), Skills Norway, and Universell, as well as parts of Unit and the Norwegian Centre for Research Data (NSD). The directorate will also be taking over selected tasks for the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT).

The directorate is the executive agency for the Ministry of Education and Research within the higher education and higher vocational education sectors, and is responsible for the national skills policy. We advise the Ministry, we implement national policies, and we coordinate incentive schemes and management instruments.

The moving of ERIH PLUS to the directorate will have no effect on the ERIH PLUS services

Plan S compliant and Open Access journals

2021-03-11: In ERIH PLUS we have done it easy for you to check if the journal is Plan S compliant. We have done so by adding the Journal Checker Tool to the information page of the journal. The tool will provide you with key information which you need to establish whether the journal is compliant with the Plan S criteria.

You can read more about cOAlition S, who developed the tool and Plan S.

We are also facilitating information in the index about open access. This is done by checking the journal directly to the DOAJ (directory of open access journals) register and the Sherpa Romeo database.
