Open Access refers to free availability of scientific knowledge. Self-archiving in the institutional repository of the university brings many benefits for both the researcher and the university. Many universities and research institutes, also the University of Tampere, either recommend or request self-archiving. Also an increasing number of research funders requests open access of research results.
