Open Access

The programme promotes Open Access to the works produced by Swedish researchers, teachers and students. We accomplish this by supporting Open Access publishing in OA repositories and OA journals at Swedish institutions of higher education.

We work with

  • information and advice
  • development of infrastructure and services
  • coordination of policy

The programme is also acting as Swedish node in the EU-funded project OpenAIRE.

The programme is run by the National Library of Sweden (KB)

In collaboration with the National Library of Sweden the Swedish Research Council has produced a proposal for national guidelines for both scientific publications/artistic works and research data. The proposal, which also contains recommendations on what needs to be further investigated, was submitted to the Government in January 2015.
