Open Science and Research

Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences follows the national Decla­ra­tion for Open Science and Research in Finland. The organ­i­sa­tion has own policy for open oper­a­tional culture, open publi­ca­tion, and data management.

RDI projects are required to apply the data manage­ment plan by dmpTu­uli tool. Open science and research require­ments are discussed in an inter­nal meeting with RDI services in the begin­ning of each project.

The open science and research work is coor­di­nated at Karelia by a coor­di­nat­ing group, which has repre­sen­ta­tives from RDI services, library, educa­tion, data admin­is­tra­tion, HR and research ethics.
