Scientific production is a fundamental part of a Ph.D. programme and Politecnico di Torino has issued an  Policy about Open Access to scientific publications.

Open Access is a movement, created within the academic world, that promotes free access to results from scientific research and favours the sharing and growth of scientific knowledge. The aim is to ensure maximum visibility and use of documents, starting with the basic idea that the results of publicly funded research must be available to everyone.

For internal evaluation, Politecnico takes into consideration only the contributions deposited by Ph.D. candidates into the IRIS Institutional Archive (here is the guide).
