I just found, via DOAJ, a new Finnish open access journal, Human
Technology: An Interdisciplinary Journal on Humans in ICT Environments.
To my knowledge, it is so far the only journal that has an explicit open
access statement or self-archiving policy. However, earlier this year
the Ministry of Education recommended that all journals should allow
postprint self-archiving.

The Journal is published by the University of Jyväskylä, which means it
is 100% subsidized.

In addition, I would classify eight other Finnish journals as open
access journals. These include:

Annales Academiæ Scientiarum Fennicæ Mathematica
(it's a yearbook, so is it not a journal at all?)

Annales Botanici Fennici (printing disabled, Impact Factor 2004: 0.494)

Annales Zoologici Fennici (printing disabled, Impact Factor 2004: 1.078)

Boreal Environment Research (Impact Factor 2004: 0.989)

Silva Fennica (Impact Factor 2004: 1.506)
