Academy of Finland requires immediate open access publishing and develops its practices for responsible researcher evaluation

After 1 January 2021, the Academy of Finland will introduce a number of reforms concerning open access to scientific publications and responsible researcher evaluation.

  • From January 2021, funded projects must make research results open access immediately for everyone.
  • Instead of journal-based metrics (e.g. the impact factor of the journal), reviewers are primarily instructed to assess the quality of different research outputs, take into account the diversity of the research career and consider career breaks more clearly than before.

The guidelines for open access publishing and self-archiving in JYU can be found in Publishing policy of the University of Jyväskylä.
