Open access publishing for PhD students in the social sciences at the University of Helsinki

Tutkimustuotos: TyöpaperiTieteellinen


Open access publishing is usually a free route to publishing. It makes the articles available online for anyone anywhere in the world without a financial barrier. It creates more visibility and enhances research impact. Compared to non-open access, open access publications get more citations. Higher education institutes are supportive of open access in ways which researchers are unaware. The aim of this paper is to give a broad perspective of open access publishing to PhD students by highlighting the opportunities and challenges it offers. The demand for open access publishing by the funding institutions has also been highlighted. The focus of this manuscript is to inform students about the support provided for open access publishing by the University of Helsinki. The paper also provides links to useful databases and provides students with relevant information and suggestions.
