ReNEW open access support aims at a broader dissemination of research on Norden, especially in a global context. Open access support can be applied for on a competitive basis for publications within the themes of ReNEW. Open access support is available for payment of open access fees for books, journal articles and book chapters. The publication must have been published within the previous year or will be published in the following year (as per the date of application). Costs for preparatory work before manuscript submission may be included. The anticipated level for a contribution is 5,000 to 20,000 NOK for articles/chapters and 10,000 to 60,000 NOK for books. (In exceptional cases, support for articles can be increased up to 25,000 NOK for articles and 120,000 NOK for books.)
- The relevance of the publication to ReNEW themes.
- The importance of broad dissemination of this research
- Contribution from applicant/other institutions to open access payment
- The status of publisher in the relevant discipline or context.
- How the publication is connected to ReNEW partner.
When open access support is needed urgently, an open access application can be made outside the standard biannual ReNEW deadlines. An application is deemed urgent if a publisher or potential open access co-funder requires earlier notification of open access support. Evidence of urgency must be provided.
 For example, copy editing, proof reading, language check, indexing, coordination with authors and publisher.
