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 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!)
