Abstract : hprints.org is a recently established Open Access repository in the fields of social sciences and arts and humanities. It is a Nordic initiative and as such an example of a ”green” Open Access facility aiming at making scholarly documents publicly available to the widest possible audience. The archive can be accessed freely on the Internet. hprints.org has been funded twice by Nordbib, since 2007. The first hprints project set up the current repository on a basis of technical and policy requirements, and the second – ongoing – project has translated the authors' rights document “Licence to Publish” into Nordic languages, and are now conducting focused outreach to selected groups of researchers.
