Partner articles on ScienceNorway

The partner articles on give insight into new and interesting research in Norway. These articles are written by communication staff at one of our 77 owners. We label this content to distinguish institutional outreach from independent editorial content.


The online news site ScienceNorway is part of the Norwegian news site Both are owned by an association that was created precisely for that purpose in 2002.

The Owners’ Association has 77 partners: universities, university colleges, information centres, institutes and public agencies that have research departments. What they all have in common is a requirement to share the results of their research with the public.

As partners, these organizations have the opportunity to submit articles for review for publication. These articles are drawn from their own magazines, websites or press releases, and are written by communications professionals or freelancers.

When one of our partner institutions submits a proposed article, it is sent to a dedicated division of ScienceNorway. There, an editor evaluates and edits articles submitted by partners. The membership division is managed by the CEO.

Partners do not pay to publish individual articles, but they do pay an annual membership fee to the Owners' Association. For this reason, all partner articles are marked at the top with "This article is produced and financed by the University of… ..". This tagline is repeated in a fact box, and the partner institution is listed in the byline. The articles are also clearly marked as such on our front page and when content is shared in social media.

Partner articles present a comprehensive and exciting view of research as portrayed by the institutions themselves. The articles are clearly not neutral from a news standpoint, and are almost never critical, but they do showcase research that is being conducted in Norway in all its breadth and diversity. And these articles are very well read.
