Collaborators

The collection of publisher cost information was initiated by Open Knowledge Finland and the Open Science Working Group, on whose behalf Leo Lahti made a first request for information to Aalto University. This request led to the subsequent decision by the Administrative Court. Information on the information request and related matters in respect of the relevant parties has been collected on GitHub. This activity has also been supported by the Open Science Finland Facebook group.

The actual consolidated information request to research organizations was sent by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland in cooperation with the FinELib consortium.

The Open Science and Research Initiative has acted as a coordinating party, which carried out harmonization of the dataset together with other parties involved in the request for information.

A web application for the publication of the dataset was also produced within the project. Its source code is available on GitHub.

Data collection and its compilation would not have been possible without the libraries and staff of universities, research institutes and other organizations, who answered the request for information. We thank the following organizations for providing information:
