Original versionInstitutional Policy for Open Access to Scientific Publications
The Centre’s compliance to open access principles The Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services (NOKC) encourages communication and exchange of the research results from our institutional activities, to increase their visibility and impact in the whole scientific community and to enable the development of new standards for research evaluation. This intent is achieved by compliance with the principles of Open Access to research literature and through the most advanced techniques of registration and dissemination of digital data. The NOKC is a signatory of the Berlin Declaration on open access to scientific knowledge (http://oa.mpg.de/openaccess-berlin/berlin_declaration.pdf) and of the Petition to the European Commission in support of the open and free access to the results of research supported by public funds (http://www.ec-petition.eu/). Open Access to the research literature can be achieved in two complementary ways: 1) publication in OA journals, and 2) archiving of publications in digital repositories compliant with the OAI-PMH specifications. HeRA – Helsebiblioteket’s Research Archive In compliance with OA principles, Helsebiblioteket.no, drifted by NOKC, has created an online digital repository (http://hera.helsebiblioteket.no/) which functions as the institutional archive for NoKC’s publications, guaranteeing Open Access and long term preservation of research results.
