Open science and research
The Helsinki University Library produces and provides services to research community for opening research publications and data. Openness is the starting point for and a fundamental value of science and research. At its best it promotes equality and generates educational and cultural capital. Knowledge and learning are for everyone.
Open science strengthens democracy
A broader use of research results, data, methods and infrastructure as well as learning materials, both in the research community and in society at large, increases the impact and dissemination of research knowledge. It also builds trust in science and research. Openness helps research-based knowledge make an impact on society and paves the way for new innovations.
