Self-archiving of articles published in the open access journals will continue to be done by the library. However, researchers may receive an email reminder due to the fact that the automatic identification of publication type is not always accurate. This blog article explains why OA articles are deposited in a digital repository (Helda) and how the library supports researchers in self-archiving.

Avoin tiede koronan aikaan – katsaus avoimuuden ilmentymiin poikkeustilanteessa

Samalla, kun valtiot ovat sulkeutuneet koronaviruspandemian aikana, tiede on avautunut ainutlaatuisella tavalla. Tutkijat jakavat aineistojaan avoimesti muiden saataville ja tekevät tutkimusta yli tieteenalarajojen, kustantajat purkavat maksumuurejaan ja uusia tapoja tieteellisen tiedon luomiseksi ja välittämiseksi kehitetään. Tässä blogiartikkelissa luodaan yleiskatsaus avoimen tieteen ja tiedon avoimuuden ilmentymiin ja teemoihin viimeisen kolmen kuukauden aikana.

How and why I self-archive – four researchers report their views

Many reasons are given for self-archiving, and self-archivers follow many different practices. We asked four researchers from different disciplines how and why they self-archive their research results. We also asked the researchers about their views on the promotion of self-archiving. This is the seventh part of the Think Open blog’s article series on self-archiving.

Open science in my PhD

”Science should be transparent and accessible to everyone. Today, I firmly believe that science goes hand in hand with openness. When I started my PhD couple of years ago, I did not even know what open science meant. Since then, I have taken baby steps towards a more sustainable science culture.” In this blog post, University of Helsinki doctoral student Julia Kemppinen writes on a practical level how she learned to understand the importance of open science and how she implements open science practices in her research.
