About this site

The 'How do I publish open access?' website contains information and training material for university researchers, teachers and service staff

The Art University Copyright Advice and the Aalto University Research and Innovation Services are implementing the 'How do I publish open access?' project funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture. The project deals with the practical problems of open access publishing from the user's perspective and seeks answers and solutions to researchers' questions. The material will be gathered on a national and open website at openaccess.aalto.fi.

The website explores what Open Access means for researchers seeking publications or research funding or publishing their research results.

The website provides model contracts and video recordings of training events. Further information: Legal Counsel (IP) Maria Rehbinder, maria.rehbinder [at] aalto [dot] fi.

Most of the texts on the 'How do I publish open access?' website have been written by Project Coordinator Sari Nokkanen (MA) and the sections on legal aspects by Legal Counsel (IP) Maria Rehbinder (LLM). Illustration was made by Emmi Kyytsönen / Karppi Design.
