Responsible research – what is it?

Responsible research promotes reliable and collectively accepted practices of producing, publishing, and assessing research results. It supports the transparency, presence, and utilization of science in society.

Responsible research is present in the activities and communication of the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies (TSV) and the research support bodies associated with it: the Open Science Coordination, the Publication Forum (JUFO), the Committee for Public Information (TJNK) and the Finnish National Board on Research Integrity TENK. 

Vastuullinentiede.fi is a group of websites maintained by the responsible research bodies mentioned above. Here, you will find all of our shared activities summarised. You can also access the separate website of each body. Material published on the Responsible Research websites (avointiede.fi, julkaisufoorumi.fi, tenk.fi, tjnk.fi and vastuullinentiede.fi) after 1.1.2021 is licensed with a CC BY 4.0 license unless otherwise stated. 

The website includes the Articles of Responsible Research which are guides for best practices in research ethics, science communication and open science in the Finnish science community. The articles combine the best practices of research integrity and science communication with the wider framework of open science culture and responsible assessment of research outputs.

The website is funded by the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture.
