UiT The Arctic University of Norway
The University Library of UiT The Arctic University of Norway considers itself a pillar of the institution’s Open Access Policy, which mandates self-archiving of peer-reviewed articles, choice of gold open access publishing venues whenever possible, and open archiving of all master’s theses and doctoral dissertations. Theses and dissertations, as well as self-archived work by the faculty, are made openly available through the green OA institutional repository https://munin.uit.no. Several series (occasional reports as well as regular peer-reviewed journals) with editors affiliated to UiT are being published through the gold OA publishing service https://septentrio.uit.no. Library staff provide technical support, metadata control, DOI’s, persistent storage as well as indexing of all content in Munin and Septentrio. Moreover, UiT has a strong policy on open sharing of research data. For this purpose, the library runs an international, subject-specific data archive, https://dataverse.no/dataverse/trolling for open data in linguistics, and a national, generic repository, https://dataverse.no/ for open data from researchers affiliated with UiT or partner institutions across the country. All datasets are curated by trained library staff before publication.
