Norwegen trat BioMed Central bei

Norway’s decision is another landmark in the move towards Open Access for all biomedical research. Two other European countries have already taken out nationwide BioMed Central membership for the majority of their publicly funded researchers. In May 2004, BioMed Central announced that FinELib (the National Electronic Library of Finland) had agreed membership for all 25000 publicly funded researchers and teachers in Finland.
