The choice of a documentation licence does also vary by project. One of the following licensing schemes is applied to the written documentation (e.g. user manuals, development documentation) of a VTT open source project.

VTT's scientific papers are copyrighted material, but open access publishing is favored. VTT publication series (e.g. research notes, dissertations) are available free of charge at VTT's electronic library. Journal articles and seminar papers are typically copyright of the publisher in question. When possible, we choose publishers who make the content freely available to the public.
