Publication strategy – what do we publish and why?
Turku UAS’ publication activities are a part of our research and innovation activities. Their purpose is to highlight the results of the research, development and innovation activities at Turku University of Applied Sciences and the competence and expertise of the students and staff.
At Turku UAS, the aim is both to produce scientifically worthy publications and to highlight the results and competence in professional media. In addition, the aim of the publications is to support bringing forward our professionalism for the everyday needs of the region.
In publication activities, we encourage towards open access and self-archiving (i.e. parallel publishing). Open Access refers to having the publications permanently accessible online without any compensation. In the publication series and other own publishing channels of Turku UAS, the focus is on open access publishing. Self-archived publications are accessible in Turku UAS open access repository Theseus .
High-quality publication activities support the brand and impact of Turku UAS. Publishing is one of the result indicators in the funding granted to universities of applied sciences.
