Thank you for confirming your Helsinki Initiative signature.

Here are some ideas how to support the Helsinki Initiative:

  • Spread the word about the initiative to your colleagues
  • Translate the initiative to your own language
  • Take part in the #InAllLanguages -campaign in the social media. "In all languages" campaign is a wake-up call for policy-makers, leaders, universities, research institutions, research funders, libraries, and researchers to promote multilingualism in scholarly communication. Participate by posting in Twitter or Facebook a statement or video of your or your colleagues' support for multilingualism in scholarly communication, of course #InAllLanguages.
  • Write about the inititiative in your own language. Defining key terms in context is an essential task for signatories of this initiative. The founding signatories are aware of significant structural differences in scholarly communication between countries and disciplines. Thus no universal definitions are valid and dialogue in defining terms is considered an essential element in developing a stronger scholarly communication across the world. For inspiration, read the ENRESSH statement supporting the initiative.
