Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. No subscription fees are charged to readers.


Article Processing Charge (APC)

This policy applies only to authors whose papers have been already accepted for publication. To ensure the highest level of quality of its publications, the journal augments its very limited funding by charging authors of accepted papers (who have access to funding from their home institutions) an Article Processing Charge (APC) of NOK 6 500 to cover editorial costs. The APC may be waived (if limited funding permits) only if there is no possibility for the authors to receive funding from their home institution or university.
