For the first time ever, the Internet now offers the chance to constitute a global and interactive representation of human knowledge, including cultural heritage and the guarantee of worldwide access.In order to realize the vision of a global and accessible representation of knowledge, the future Web has to be sustainable, interactive, and transparent. Content and software tools must be openly accessible and compatible.[from the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to the Knowledge in The Sciences and Humanities, October 2003]</p><p>19 November 2004Open Access Developments</p><p>What we mean by Open AccessImmediate unconditional electronic access to research results: primary scientific literature (papers/books) of scholarly interest, data, (multimedia) objects representing scientific knowledge (incl. artifacts of cultural heritage)Standards (interfaces, formats) that support connectivity and integration in 3rd party services, discipline specific knowledge spaces etc.Suitable regulation of copyright/license agreement to ensure proper attribution to creator and open access dissemination - dedication to publicNo compromise on quality: transfer traditional elements, complement and improve by new approaches transparent and community specific Provided through a sustainable, scalable and distributed infrastructure ensuring effective and persistent access</p><p>19 November 2004Open Access Developments</p><p>The Berlin Declaration</p><p>19 November 2004Open Access Developments</p><p>The Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in Science and HumanitiesConference 21-23 October 2003, Berlin, initiated by Max Planck Society to address lack of institutional commitment in open access movementOpen Access History: Public Library of Science 2001, Budapest Open Access Initiative 2002, Bethesda Statement 2003 </p><p> major organizations of science and culture declare their mission only half complete if the information they produce is not made freely available to society under the open access principle.</p><p>19 November 2004Open Access Developments</p><p>The Open Access Paradigm of the Berlin Declaration</p><p> the creator of a scientific work grants users a geographically unlimited, permanent use right (incl. access, copying, public distribution) given proper attribution of work to the creator a copy of the work is deposited in electronic format at an Open Access Online Archiv which is maintained by an organisation which maintains it and is dedicated to the open access aims of maximal dissemination, interoperability and ensuring long term availability</p><p>19 November 2004Open Access Developments</p><p>Signatories of the Berlin Declaration Max Planck Society, German Research Foundation, Fraunhofer Society, Leibniz Association, Helmholtz Association, Deutscher Wissenschaftsrat, Association of Universities and other Higher Education Institutions in Germany Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Institut National de la Sant et de la Recherche Mdicale (INSERM) Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden Deutscher Bibliotheksverband, Deutsche Initiative fr Netzwerkinformation (DINI) National Hellenic Research Foundation, FWF Austrian Science Fund, Fund for Scientific Research Flanders, National Science Fund of China Minister of Education Cultura y Deportes Gobierno de Canarias Norwegian Institute of Palaeography and Historical Philology Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza Florence Central European University Budapest, University of Pavia Indian National Science Academy, Chinese National Academy, Academia Europaea Open Society Institute (OSI) , SPARC, SPARC Europe CERN</p><p>Invitation to join:Governments, universities, research institutions, funding agencies, foundations, libraries, museums, archives, learned societies and professional associations, please contact: </p><p>Prof. Dr. Peter GrussPresident of the Max Planck Society, Munich, GermanyURL:</p><p>19 November 2004Open Access Developments</p><p>Open Access Perspectives- Open Access Declarations: Budapest (2001), Bethesda (2003), Berlin (2003)Growing awareness at political level:Recommendations of the UK House of Commons Science and Technology Committee (20 Jul 2004), Recommendations of the USA Budgetary Committee and the House of Representatives (NIH Open Access Implementation Plan by 1 Dec 2004 Support by 25 Nobel Laureates), UN World Summit on Information Society (Dec 2003)OECD Science and Technology Policy Committee- OA zu Daten (30 Jan 2004)- EU commissions study Scientific Publishing Results expected in summer 2005</p><p>19 November 2004Open Access Developments</p><p>The Implementation of Open Access</p><p>19 November 2004Open Access Developments</p><p>The Berlin ProcessContinuous, open process of Berlin Signatories focused on realizing the vision of Open AccessRegular, 6-monthly meetings of Berlin Signatories1st follow-up at CERN, 12/13 May 2004 1st Roadmap follow-up at U Southampton, 28 Fe/1 Mar 20053rd follow-up in planning (Sep 2005 in Berlin ?
