The Publications Unit at the Nordic Council of Ministers publishes between 150 and 200 publications annually of which around 100 are published in the TemaNord series and Nord. Of these publications 50–60% are pub-lished in English.
Our publications are widely distributed as ebooks through commercial sales channels like Amazon Kindle, Google Play, and Nordic ebook vendors but also through aggregators like ebrary and EBSCO. We use discoverability services like Google Books, OCLC Worldcat, and Proquest Serials Solutions.
Furthermore our TemaNord books are distributed through the eLibrary of the International Monetary Fund (http://elibrary.imf.org). Soon our they will also be distributed through the OECD iLibrary (http://www.oecd-ilibrary.org).
We promote our publications using social media like Twitter and LinkedIn and by announcing new titles through our newsletter service at www.norden.org. Added to this we also target our newsletters directly to primary audiences, e.g. government officials.
All our publications are made available Open Access through our com-mon Nordic repository www.norden.org/nordpub. In this repository you also find publications from our Nordic institutions. Currently there are more than 3,000 publications in the repository.
Our ambition is to make all the knowledge that we publish as visible and accessible as possible in the formats and through the channels that our au-dience wishes to use.
