Theseus includes theses, publications and self-archived articles of Finnish Unversities of Applied Sciences (UAS). Theseus is an open repository maintained by UAS libraries, where articles can be found easily and long-term preservation is guaranteed. Theseus meets research funders' requirements for open access publishing.
The Rectors’ Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences Arene issued an Open Access Statement in October 2009. After 1 January 2010, the Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) will require all teachers and researchers who work at the UAS universities to save a copy of their research articles published in scientific publications, or a university publication series, in the open electronic library Theseus. The statement recommends the use of those publication channels that follow an open publication policy. It is also recommended for copies of articles published before 2010 to be self-archived.
Peer-reviewed publications of Haaga-Helia personnel are self-archived on Theseus by Haaga-Helia library.
The final peer reviewed version without publishers layout is often called Final draft, Post-print or Accepted Author Manuscript (AAM).
