The Norden iLibrary is now available through the OECD iLibrary.

Nordic publications play a key role as the outcome of the many projects and activities fostered and financed by the Nordic co-operation. Being primarily research-based analyses the publications form the basis for political decisions in the Nordic co-operation.

Every year around 100 new Nordic titles are published, approximately 65% of which are in English. They cover all the subjects that are part of the Nordic co-operation, with particular focus on:

  • Biodiversity
  • Education
  • Employment
  • the Arctic
  • Social welfare and health
