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 Aland. These countries together form the Nordic regions - Norden - which comprises approximately 26 million people. Combined, the GDPs of these 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 economy. Common Nordic values help the regions solidify its position as one of the world's most innovative and competitive.
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 researched-based analyses, the publications form the basis for political decisions for the region.
Every year approximately 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 bio-economy
- Sustainable development
- Health and social welfare
- Education and research
- Labour and employment
- The Arctic
These publications are available online in a single research repository using the renowned iLibrary platform that was developed by the OECD. Subscribers to both subscriptions are able to perform searches through the two collections simultaneously. Content is organised by series title, publication year and alphabetically. 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 mobile devices, sharing with peers via social networks or integrating content into a report.
The Nordic iLibrary was launched in 2015 and as of June 2019, there are 1,097 eBook titles, 11,350 chapters and 77 indicators.
