Event: Open Science afternoon (in Finnish)
Location: Think Corner, Stage (Yliopistonkatu 4)
Time: Oct 23, 2017 at 1 pm – 2.30 pm
How does open access publishing, open learning materials and open data affect researchers’ work? Will open science change research and publishing fundamentally? How does the future look for science publishing and open research?
University lecturer Mirkka Lappalainen, Research Administration Specialist (UH) Eeva Nyrövaara, Professor Markku Löytönen and Gaudeamus publishing director Leena Kaakinen will take the stage and discuss about these and plenty of more questions.
Helsinki University Library will also reward an open science promoter. So show up and get inspired!
The event is part of the International Open Access Week at the University of Helsinki Library, free of charge and open to everyone. Think Corner Café serves throughout the event.

Helsinki University Library’sopen dataweb serviceapi.hulib.helsinki.fioffersthe vast majority ofthe library’s data in easy-to-use JSON format. In addition to library catalog data, the service contains data ofUniversity of Helsinkidisciplines andlibraryopening hours.The APIsare documented in Swaggerspecifications.
Citizens and businesses canretrieve library’s data fromthe service for personal or commercialpurposes.For example, we hope to seenew mobileservices based on our data.The service will be expanded anddeveloped further in the future. We are planningto open data of Helda, as well as University’s researchgroups‘ publication datathrough the service.
The servicewas implemented by the Helsinki University Library’sapplication developmentgroup. Helsinki University Libraryhas long been apioneer in the applicationof information technology, but the current closedlibrary system preventsthe library catalog datafrom appearing insearch engines such as Google. The current librarysystemdoes not provide any toolsfor openingthe data.The upcomingnewlibrarysystemshould havebuilt-in supportfor open APIs.
