Tampere higher education community recommends that researchers publish their research data in a repository or service that fits the material. Tampere University does not maintain a service that provides this material in machine-readable form.

In accordance of Tampere higher education community guidelines on open science the essential metadata on the research datasets is always publicly open. Metadata is released when archiving the datasets or in a service best suited for the metadata depending on the field of study. The University offers recommendations on possible services, which can be used to make the metadata available. Tampere higher education community does not currently maintain a service on which the metadata on research would be available.

Metadata of the research datasets from Tampere University is available in research data finder Etsin. Etsin is a research data finder that contains descriptive information – that is, metadata – on research datasets. The metadata stored in Etsin includes information on the author, subject, format and licensing of the dataset. In the service, you can search and find data from various fields of research.

All publication data and activities of Tampere University of Technology are maintained in the TUTCRIS research information system. TUTCRIS also serves as TUT’s institutional repository. Information on projects, datasets and research infrastructure is also maintained in the system.
