The role of data is good to take into account in Open Access publishing. Open Access also affects the visibility and impact of the research. In the Tampere higher education community theses will be published openly. Read more in our guides:
Open Access (OA) is about the open, free availability of scientific information. It means that the user has the right to read, copy, print and link full-text versions of scientific publications. A scientific publication can be defined as publicly available once it is readable on the Internet by both the scientific community and the general public, free of charge.
Make your work open access by
In making your work open you must take into account embargoes that publishers apply to self-archiving. Often the embargo for self-archiving is 12 months or longer. Many research funders do not allow embargoes longer than 6 months (12 months in humanities and social sciences). If the embargo set by the publisher extends this, self-archiving does not comply with the requirements of the research funder.
Tampere Universities have adopted an Open Science Policy that reflects their commitment to the principles of academic integrity and the promotion of open access to their research output. The policy highlights the general principles of openness of Tampere higher education community. In addition, the policy takes into account the monitoring and evaluation of the open science policy. A coordination group will be set up to guide and monitor the implementation of an open science policy.
The aim of the action program is to ensure that the principles of open science are implemented naturally in the university processes and in the everyday work of the researcher.
