Keywords:HSS publication, financial support
See video of the presentation.Theory and Practice in OA-policies: The Research Council of Norway is currently revising its policy on Open Access. At the same time the Council is looking at ways to support Norwegian journals within humanities and social sciences in order to promote OA-publishing. As a funding agency, the Research
Council is looking at ways to implement OA-policies. The key question is: How to move from principle declarations on Open Access to practical tools for achieving OA-goals? Schjølberg and Løvhaug will present a model for financial support to OA-journals within humanities and social sciences as a joint venture between the Research Council and research institutions in Norway.
