Open Science and Research

Open Science is an internationally important way to promote science and increase the impact of science in society. Open Science provides faster access to research outputs and therefore saves resources, promotes high quality science, and allows the rise of new research questions. University of Oulu is committed to promoting Open and Responsible Science in its strategy. University adheres to the national and international requirements of Open and Responsible Science and Research, taking into account the legitimate constraints on openness in order to protect immaterial rights and personal privacy. 


In accordance with the Program of Responsible Research, published in 2018, the openness of research is an integral part of the actions of the university community. The separately published Action Plan ensures the Program's implementation, services and their practical implementation and describes responsible parties, scheduling and monitoring of the implementation.
