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.
