Aalto University’s open science monitoring results are in line with most of the other Finnish universities
All universities and universities of applied sciences and most of the research institutes participated in the monitoring questionnaire and information gathering on open science and research policies, services and results.
Aalto University did well in the areas of open scholarship, open data and infrastructure and open publishing, but our results were only satisfactory in the area of open education.
Our results are in line with the other universities. However, some universities got excellent points in all the areas of the open science monitoring.
The results of the open science monitoring has been published in the national research.fi portal where it’s possible to view the result from different viewpoints. The detailed monitoring results of Aalto University can be found at Aalto University's page in the research.fi.
