About Nordic 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:

  • climate and environmental studies
  • green growth and bioeconomy
  • sustainable development
  • health and social welfare
  • education and research
  • labour and employment
  • the Arctic

  • These publications are now available online in the single research repository, Nordic iLibrary at www.nordic-ilibrary.org. Content is organised by series title, publication year and alphabetically; and search and discovery of complete publications or even their components – chapters and tables/graphs – is a click away. The content is accessible in different formats – PDF, ePub and READ – to meet users’ needs, whether for reading on a mobile device, sharing with peers via social networks or integrating content in a report.

    The Nordic iLibrary has been developed in partnership with OECD Publishing as part of the IGO Partnership Programme. In case of questions about the service - access or subscriptions - contact us via email.

  • About Norden

    The Nordic co-operation is one of the world’s most extensive forms of regional collaboration, involving Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Åland. These countries together form the Nordic region – Norden – which comprises approximately 26 million people. Combined the GDPs of the countries make the region’s economy the 12th largest in the world.

    The parliamentary co-operation in the region began in 1952 and was expanded in 1971 with the body for intergovernmental co-operation, the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Nordic co-operation has firm traditions in politics, the economy, and culture. It plays an important role in European and international collaboration, and aims at creating a strong Nordic community in a strong Europe. The Nordic co-operation seeks to safeguard Nordic and regional interests and principles in the global community. Common Nordic values help the region solidify its position as one of the world’s most innovative and competitive.
