"The University of Helsinki gives annually a recognition for remarkable open science promotion. The theme for the 2022 Open Science Award was open access publishing. The goal of this year’s Award was to highlight different channels for open access publishing, alternative publishing practices and platforms, and to give credit to researchers and University units who, in their work, have significantly promoted the culture of open access publishing. Nominations were requested from University units, and from the University community via the Flamma intranet. The call for nominees emphasized candidates with merits such as systematic and long-term profile in OA publishing, use and development of new kinds of open publishing platforms or venues, use of open peer review, or participating in discussion or the development of open publishing on the national or international level. The nominations were assessed by the award jury that consisted of Vice-Rector Kai Nordlund, University Librarian Minna Niemi-Grundström, Research Director Krister Lindén, Leading Information Specialist Markku Roinila and Senior Advisor Tiina Käkelä. The jury decided to grant the award to two nominees for significant open access promotion at the University of Helsinki. The award was given to the Helsinki Institute of Life Science HiLIFE, and to the Helsinki Term Bank for the Arts and Sciences. The University of Helsinki Open Science Award was presented at Think Corner on 24 October, in the event Avoimen tieteen iltapäivä [Open Science Afternoon]..."
