The following guidelines apply to papers published in the publication series of the University of Vaasa. They are always published freely accessible online, some also in print.
By publishing scientific work, the University of Vaasa brings research findings to public attention and, according to scientific principles, subjects them to assessment by both the public and the entire research community. Publishing activity gives the University a profile as a research institute and a member of the scientific community.
Adherence to these guidelines helps streamline the publishing process. Following the academic rhythm, most publications are completed either in the latter months of the year or in May and June. These guidelines have been designed to ensure enough time for the preparation of all publications. At the same time, they help assure the quality of the publication and speed up the application of the new knowledge.
The University will only accept manuscripts written and submitted according to these guidelines. To avoid multiple revision rounds, manuscripts should be forwarded to the process only after the final revision. This will accelerate the process and help eliminate errors that may occur in dealing with multiple versions.
University research papers are also issued by other organizations in their publication series or as special publications. Publishers producing scientific papers regularly usually have their own guidelines that should be studied in advance.
Dissertations and research papers intended for international readers are published in this series.
All dissertation papers published by the University are available in Acta Wasaensia. A dissertation can also be published by another organization. In this case, the candidate is responsible for the schedule, printing process and expenses and is required to submit a digital version to be archived and a printed book to the library.
The publications in this series are published both in print and online. The articles/essays that comprise the dissertation must also be openly published (Rector's Decision, 2021).
This series includes research studies and reports within the field of basic or applied research intended mainly for a domestic audience. The publications in this series are peer-reviewed and in general only published online.
In this series, you can publish various reports, educational materials, feasibility studies, and conference papers. The publications in this series are in general only published online.
