Abstract


Welcome to the Grand Final issue of ScieCom info: Nordic-Baltic Forum for Scientific Communication November 2014.

We thank all our faithful readers throughout our ten-year existence and are very grateful for all your support.

It has been a real pleasure to be able to cooperate with our experienced and resourceful editors in all the Nordic and in the Baltic countries, and we sincerely hope, that this Nordic-Baltic cooperation will live on to give a common support to the Open Access movement.

Special thanks to our highly valued web editor and editorial staff.

Finally – many thanks to all our authors from our Nordic and Baltic countries. Your contributions on the developments of OA-publishing and OA-policies in your countries have generated an international interest.

In this issue we present an overview of the DOAJ, once created here at Lund university, the opinions on OA-policy in the Norwegian an Swedish research councils, an interview with a Lithuanian academician on the advantages of OA, and report on the current status of OA in the Nordic and Baltic countries.

Have a good read!
