Tampere higher education comunity's Open Science and Research policy

Tampere higher education community promotes responsible and open science, access to digital research data, scientific publications and research methods, and the use of open source codes, standards and interfaces in research. According to the higher education community's Open Science and Research policy: 

  • Research data related to research results is by default open and meant for cooperative use
  • Every researcher is responsible for good data management and a data management plan (DMP) should be made at the beginning of a research project
  • Well-managed research data is also regarded as a merit for a researcher

Tampere higher education community promotes open science and research in data management but also in publishing activities. The goal is to increase visibility and availability of scientific research.

Research data should be "as open as possible, as closed as necessary", which is the guideline by the European Commission on Data Management. The Guidelines of FAIR Data Management in Horizon 2020 (pdf) was released in July 2016.
