JYU as a publisher

The University of Jyväskylä departments and other units are active publishers. The units publish their own scientific series and journals as well as various independent publications, such as working papers and reports related to their research activities and projects. A publication proposal can be made to the publication contact person of each unit or the JYU Publishing Services. The principles of publishing set guidelines for publishing at the University of Jyväskylä (JYU).
