"Open Science Award 2017 winner chosen
The UEF Library has founded a tradition of awarding someone in our university for pro open science work. The second Open Science Award was awarded to Tuula Honkanen from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Business Studies.
Tuula’s active take on developing the digital approval and publishing workflow of master’s theses, has facilitated open access publishing and more importantly, created a change within the faculty on how people feel about open access. As a result, the open access publishing of master’s theses has increased by 23% in a year in the Faculty of Social Sciences and Business Studies. By guiding students to explore the possibilities of open access, we are raising a generation of open access scientists.
