From Google’s English: “The share of open publications in all peer-reviewed articles at Finnish higher education institutions rose to 77.9% last year. Both universities and polytechnics reached the same percentage. In previous years, the openness of publications has been more common in polytechnics than in universities, but now universities have closed the gap….
The share of open publications in universities increased by more than six per cent compared to the previous year. However, this time the statistical data were collected from the July publication data portal a couple of months later than in the previous year, which may affect the comparability of the figures somewhat. During the year, the share of open publications will gradually increase as the publications are co-recorded and the embargo periods for co-recordings expire….
In most universities, the proportion of open publications was close to or somewhat above 80%. The top of statistics in recent years is no longer alone in its own readings, as other universities have also utilized Jyväskylä’s experience in developing their own processes.
The most significant trend in the last couple of years has been the increase in the immediate transparency of publications. An increasing number of publications are openly available on the publisher’s service, either as part of a fully open publication channel or as part of an open hybrid publication channel. For peer-reviewed articles, the combined share of such publications already open to the publisher reached 59.6% last year (2020: 48.1%)….”
From Google’s English: “The recommendations have been prepared by a working group chaired by Joonas Nikkanen (CSC) and Jyrki Ilva (National Library) under the Expert Group on Transparency in Publication .
The primary target audience for the recommendations is Finnish research organizations and scientific publishers who do practical work related to publishing and the technical infrastructure supporting publishing. The recommendations are based on the idea that cooperation at national and international level offers the best conditions for building high-quality, cost-effective infrastructures that support the interoperability of systems.
The recommendations are divided into target groups at the basic or ideal level. The idea is that all open publishing services should meet at least the criteria set out in the basic recommendations. Adherence to ideal-level recommendations is also desirable, but they may be more difficult to implement and may not be as relevant to all actors or services.”
“DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals) and the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies (TSV) are Collaborating on a Pilot Project to Promote and Help Peer-reviewed Open Access (OA) Journals published in Finland to be indexed in DOAJ. An open information event will be held on December 3 at 10 am – 12 pm at the House of Science and Letters (Kirkkokatu 6, Helsinki). Remote participation is also possible. Some of the presentations will be in Finnish and some in English….”
“The University of Eastern Finland has a Publishing and Data Policy which states that all publications should be made openly available when possible. The Library has launched a service to help researchers meet those requirements by self archiving their scientific publications. Self-archiving is essentially providing an open access version of an article which otherwise would be behind a paywall. Self-archiving is a good method to increase the accessibility and impact of your work while still operating within the guidelines of the original publisher of the article. The self-archived articles are stored in the new University publication repository UEF eRepository or eRepo.
Self-archiving has been made easy for the researcher and can be done at the same time you report your new publication into the SoleCRIS publication database with the Publishing information registration form. All the researcher has to do, is to attach the final draft version of the article to the SoleCRIS form. Everything else is done by the Library.”
