Open access to scholarly publications - national policy by the research community in Finland was accepted

The first national open science policy component in Finland was accepted and published 25 November 2019. The policy deals with open access to journal and conference articles, and later, to scientific and research books and book chapters.

Strategic principles:

1. The total cost for scholarly publications will not exceed the current overall cost when transitioning to open access. The estimate of overall costs reflects all present costs and the total volume of research.

2. All researchers have an equal opportunity to publish their research through open access, regardless of field of research, funding basis, or career stage.

3. When assessing scholarly publications, the quality and openness of individual research publications are considered independently.

4. The assessment of researchers and research takes into account new and changing forms of publishing reflecting open science.
