We check publication rights and archive your publications according to the terms of the publisher. Send your file to firstname.lastname@example.org and include information on where your publication will be published.
If you are uncertain which version of your publication can be archived or when it can be archived, send us all the versions you have. (More information on different versions in Open Access: Self-archiving (Green OA).
The archiving service is available to all University of Helsinki staff and students. If you have any questions about this service, about self-archiving or about open access you can reach us at email@example.com.
Eighty-four percent of the researchers who answered the library’s patron survey in the spring 2018 said they would use a self-archiving service if available.
New open access publishing model is part of the three year agreement between Finnish universities and research institutions and Elsevier. Read more about the agreement.
