EIFL in Estonia

EIFL has been working in Estonia since 1999. We engaged with the development of the Consortium of Estonian Libraries Network (ELNET),  and through this partnership libraries in Estonia are providing access to a wide range of scholarly e-resources. EIFL agreements with publishers also allow authors in Estonia to publish in open access in hybrid or fully open access journals at waived or discounted Article Processing Charges (APCs).

EIFL supported national and institutional open access awareness raising and advocacy workshops which have resulted in the launch of open access monographs, journals, repositories for peer-reviewed publications and research data, and open access and open science policies.

EIFL also advocated for revisions to the national copyright law to enable libraries to better meet the needs of their users.
