Open Access and Open Data: National requirements and local implementations

The University Library would like to invite you to a seminar about open access to research.


The last couple of years the Norwegian Government has introduced national guidelines for open access to research articles and research data. This autumn Plan S was announced, with potentially major consequences for the future publishing landscape. 

In the seminar we will discuss the national policies and learn more about local initiatives for making research and research data openly available.
