Jyväskylä University Library - at the Heart of Campus

University of Jyväskylä Awarded for Open Science - University Library Plays a Key Role in Promoting Openness and Visibility

“The University of Jyväskylä is by far number one in parallel publishing in Finland.”

Distinguished operators in open science in 2015 were awarded at the forum for the Open Science and Research Initiative held in Tampere on November 11th, 2015. The awards are based on a report made in 2015 concerning the openness of the operational culture in higher education institutions. The report is the first of its kind in evaluating the maturity level of each organization’s current state of openness.

In the overall assessment of the openness of their operational culture, the highest ranking organization was the University of Helsinki while the University of Jyväskylä was awarded for the most comprehensive measures for tracking openness and visibility.

The University Library has been an active promoter of parallel publishing and the visibility of open science in the University of Jyväskylä.

The Vice-Rector of the University of Jyväskylä, Kaisa Miettinen, tells about the actions our University has taken to advance openness.
