What are the NOADs (National Open Access Desk)?
The National Open Access Desks connect researchers, research institutions, and policy makers at a national level on the one end, and the OpenAIRE project services on the other. The focus of the National Open Access Desks activities is on support for compliance with the EC Open Access policies.
National Open Access Desks can help you find the appropriate repository in your country, and can answer your questions concerning Open Access, OpenAIRE, copyright issues, any special national rules and regulations concerning Open Access, and so on. They will redirect questions if necessary, especially when national issues, like copyright, are involved. You can contact them through our helpdesk.
