Tampere University Library
Tampere University Press
Tampere University Press was established in 1994, and has since published more than 350 books. In the beginning of 2016, we switched to an Open Access business model. Our objective is, for our part, to promote the availability of scholarly literature and the societal impact of research.
To foster research integrity and open science Tampere University Press has published its own Data and Materials Policy.

Why Open Access?
Open Access means that research publications are available online, free of charge or other access barriers. Open Access is growing in importance because:
- Open Access publications are available to everyone; including the general public, decision-makers, journalists, teachers and other practitioners worldwide.
- Open Access publications make excellent course books, as their availability is not limited by the number of physical copies or user licenses.
- Authors retain copyright on their work, and can decide on its uses.
- Open access publications are used and cited more than publications that are behind paywall.
- Many research funders and organizations recommend or even require the open publication of research output.
TUP's Editorial Board provides expert advice on content, proposes peer-reviewers for submitted manuscripts, attracts new authors, suggests revisions, and gives final approval to manuscripts before publishing.
