Open Access

Open access to research publications is one of the pillars of open science. Through open access, research results are available to as many people as possible as quickly as possible.

The benefits of open access are obvious. Achieving open access in reality, however, requires cultural change and a re-organisation of the current financing model.

Expert group in open access to scientific publications

The expert group for access to research publications (open access) meets and discusses current topics. If necessary, the group can designate small working groups to address issues pertaining to eg. international publishing, financing, domestic publications or platforms and searchability of publications.

The expert group is chaired by Leena Kaakinen (Federation for Science Publishing in Finland) and the secretary is Sami Syrjämäki (TSV).
