- We are experts on the Nordics and on Nordic media
We are an international publisher, but with a very clear regional scope. Our scientific editors and broad network of external reviewers are experts on Nordic conditions and Nordic media research. Our Nordic profile means that the research we publish does not have to be framed to appeal to a broader international readership. Instead, we actively promote research literature that helps us better understand the role of the media in the Nordic region.
- We offer a tailor-made experience from submission to dissemination
Unlike most commercial academic publishers, we have a limited line of production, based on quality rather than quantity. This enables our in-house editorial and communications teams to provide a custom-made service for editors and authors in all steps of the publication process, including language editing and marketing.
- We are a true Open Access publisher
Thanks to our strategic partnership with the Nordic Council of Ministers, we make all our books and journals available to read and download free of charge and without requirement for registration. Print editions of our books are sold on a print-on-demand basis. All of Nordicom’s publications are published with a Creative Commons (CC) licence and without processing charges or publication fees for editors and authors.
- We connect your research with its audience, both inside and outside of academia
Our journals and books are published on the Sciendo (journals) and NordPub (books) publishing platforms, which connect our publications to a large variety of citation indexes and discovery services. In addition to this, we are committed to actively disseminating the research we publish not only within academia, but also among policy-makers, professional groups, and news media in the Nordic countries and internationally.
- We make your research accessible to everyone
Being a publicly funded institution, we comply with the EU’s Web Accessibility Directive from 2018. Thus, we ensure that all books and journal articles are published in an accessible version for readers with visual impairments or other disabilities that affect reading or understanding.
