International Collaboration

NORA exchanges knowledge and cooperates with related national infrastructures and portals.
The number is growing, currently we are in dialogue with:

  • Finland: – Information on research in Finland: Publications, People, Projects, Research data, Funding, Infrastructures, Organisations.
  • Norway:
    NIB (Nasjonal infrastruktur for bibliometri) and NVA (Nasjonalt vitenarkiv), which during 2023 will take over data and tasks from the current Cristin (Current Research Information System in Norway).
  • France:
    French Open Science Monitor – Measure the evolution of open science in France using reliable, open and controlled data.
  • Portugal:
    PTCRIS – a program that aims to promote the integration of the science management systems of the various entities that operate in the academic-scientific ecosystem, in order to comply with the principle “Register once, reuse multiple”.
  • Netherlands:
    OKB (Open Knowledge Base) project to build a national and openly available research information system.

Furthermore, we follow the international development and its collaboration potentials via:

  • euroCRIS – ‘International association for research information’, where we participate in CRISCROS (the National/Regional Research Portals Working Group)
  • VIVO – The open source software and ontology for recording, editing, searching, browsing, and visualizing scholarly activity
  • OpenAIRE – a non-profit partnership to ensure an open scholarly communication infrastructure

And benefit greatly from these open information services:

  • OurResearch – ‘Tools that make research more open’, where we especially use Unpaywall
  • DOAJ – ‘Directory of Open Access Journals’, where we’re on the Advisory Board
  • Sherpa Services – ‘Open Access compliance and Transitional Agreement look-up tools’
