Monitoring results 2022

Last updated 9.11.2022

The 2022 monitoring on open science and research has been completed with excellent results. The level of openness of the majority of the universities and universities of applied sciences was evaluated as excellent or outstanding. Four out of ten research institutions reached outstanding level. The majority of the universities and universities of applied sciences reached the two topmost levels of openness. Location, size or multidisciplinarity did not generate differences between the openness levels of higher education institutions. Among research institutions, those with medium staff numbers displayed the highest level of openness. 

Regarding universities, the openness of data and infrastructures proved to be outstanding, whereas the openness level of education was satisfactory. Universities of applied sciences and research institutions displayed less performance level variation across the various areas. As for individual questions, all universities of applied sciences and universities had, for example, considered the Declaration for Open Science and Research in their own guidelines. In addition to this, many services related to the openness of publications and use of open publications, as well as the basic services related to the data management, were available at all or almost all research organisations. Open education and responsible evaluation, in turn, were found to be the least developed areas. 

The monitoring results were published on 31 October with open access in the research.fi portal, where the users themselves can select viewpoints for viewing the data. The portal’s visual analytics platform allows for viewing the results at the level of different sectors or the entirety of Finnish open science and research. All the research data will later be published for open access.
