430 minFuture plans for NOAF and Nordic co-operation
  • Is there something we could do to revitalize the Nordic co-operation around Open Access? Do we want continue with NOAF - or do something else?
    • There were regular NOAF meetings in 2012-2017, but there have been no meetings in the last couple of years
    • The Nordic licensing consortia have their own network, and there are probably other types of co-operation related to OA as well
    • The Nordic OA mailing list hasn't been used that much in recent years and doesn't probably include all of the relevant people
    • Nordic Perspectives on Open Science was founded to continue the legacy of ScieCom Info, but hasn't been able to attract as many articles (at least so far!)
5(if time allows)Any other business
