Re: Outcome of Berlin 3 at Southampton UK Stevan Harnad 02 Mar 2005 09:36 UTC

Correction: I left out (although I had meant to include it!) that part of
recommendation (2) to encourage publishing in OA journals when a
suitable one exists was also the recommendation to help fund it!

Here is the exact wording of the provisional recommendation that we
agreed on, from Andy Gass's (PLoS) laptop, on which it was
collectively keystroked!

A more complete report on Berlin 3 will appear in D-Lib and (another
version) on the American Scientist Open Access Forum.

For your records, the powerpoint file on my computer reads:

                In order to implement the Berlin Declaration institutions should

                1) Implement a policy to require their researchers to
                deposit a copy of all their published articles in an
                open access repository.


                2) Encourage their researchers to publish their research
                articles in open access journals where a suitable journal
                exists and provide the support to enable that to happen.

open access to the peer-reviewed research literature online (1998-2004)

UNIVERSITIES: If you have adopted or plan to adopt an institutional
policy of providing Open Access to your own research article output,
please describe your policy at:

    BOAI-1 ("green"): Publish your article in a suitable toll-access journal
    BOAI-2 ("gold"): Publish your article in a suitable open-access
            journal whenever one exists.
and in both cases also self-archive it in your institutional repository.
