Field Explanation
Title Name of publication channel

"Scientific" channels are journals, series and publishers that fulfill specific criteria given by The Norwegian Association of Higher Education Institutions (UHR). There are two levels: Ordinary publication channels (level 1) and highly prestigious publication channels (level 2). This classification is used in the Norwegian funding system for higher education.

"Others" are report series, popular science magazines, periodicals and trade papers, as well as newly proposed publication channels that have not yet classified by the UHR Publication Committee. In the list of search results, these are marked with a dash ("–").

Registers are revised annually. The authoritative classification is set at the start of each year and used by the higher education institutions in Norway on reporting published works to NSD.

Open Access The search on Open Access journals can be narrowed in three ways:
  1. Open Access: Provides a combined search showing all the journals that are considered Open Access by either DOAJ or NSD
  2. DOAJ: Shows journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), an online directory indexing Open Access journals.
  3. NSD: Shows journals not listed in DOAJ which are considered by NSD to be Open Access on the basis that the journals give free access to scientific publications in full text without any embargo time.
