I study the $x$-distribution of the orbital angular momentum (OAM) of quarks and gluons in the nucleon with particular emphasis on the small-x region. I argue, in two different ways, that the gluon OAM significantly cancels the gluon helicity distribution at small-$x$. A similar cancellation occurs also in the quark sector.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
