Open science principles at the University of Jyväskylä

The University of Jyväskylä promotes open science. The main objective is to advance open access to research results, research data as well as scientific methods. 

The University of Jyväskylä follows the national and international principles and requirements of openness in science and research.

The University

  • requires that all research publications are self-archived in the university repository JYX.
  • encourages publishing in open publication series in those fields of science where esteemed publication series exist. Purchasing articles open from subscription journals (hybrid model) is not recommended, unless specifically required by the research funder.
  • requires that research data be deposited and, whenever possible, published on an open access basis so that they will be freely searchable and usable.
  • encourages researchers to explain the methods used in the research.
  • offers similar basic services to all research projects financed by supplementary funding for managing their materials, for the work of the research groups, and for publishing the research results on an open access basis.
  • encourages researchers to actively inform the academic community about the research results and make the general public aware of them.
