Submission of publication information and self-archiving
With the same form you also submit publication information to Oulun yliopisto tutkii database (SoleCris).
An article published in a scientific journal (publisher's version or so-called final draft version) is also published in an open access repository, thus making it freely available online to all.
The most important research funders in Finland require (European Commission, Academy of Finland, Tekes) open access publishing in the projects they fund. Check the latest policy from the webpage of the funding body.
Self-archiving an article in the University of Oulu's institutional repository does not impact the ownership of the copyright. The copyright is not transferred to the repository but remains with the author and/or the original publisher.
