The new practices in the September call

  • The Academy of Finland requires that all Academy-funded researchers make their scientific articles freely available via high-quality open access journals. Read more here. You can join open access clinics in Otaniemi to gain hands-on experience on how to use Aalto’s repository solutions to comply with the funders open access mandates.
  • The Academy is committed to the guidelines of the Finnish Advisory Board on Research Integrity and requires that Academy-funded researchers and sites of research respect the same guidelines. The Academy also recommend that researchers follow the European Code of Conduct for Research Integrity.

  • The Academy Research Fellowship is intended to support the career development. Therefore Academy Research Fellow funding is not granted to persons who hold tenured professorships.
  • The research plan should include descriptions of both the research project’s scientific impact and its expected impact beyond academia.
  • The guidelines on application appendices have been updated. The text part of the research plan can be no more than twelve pages and no more than 15 pages in the case of consortium applications. Additionally the bibliography of max. two pages is allowed.
