Open Science and Culture
Aalto University has already taken several measures to encourage the openness of research and education. The roadmaps by LERU and UNIFI present us with concrete objectives and steps of how to move forward.
Aalto University has signed DORA (San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment).
In Finland measures to rearch open culture has been developed by Open Science and its working groups.
Researcher assessment (recruiting, personal bonuses, project funding, expert tasks etc.) influences what is being studied by funding allocations, merits and structural processes of research organisations. Recommendations on assessments have been given internationally (e.g. DORA, Leiden Manifest) and nationally (Publication Forum and criteria of tenured professors by the Finnish Union of University Professors). A draft on recommendation for the responsible evaluation of a researcher guides in researcher evaluation, and its implementation, ethical conduct and transparency.
