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.
