Provisional recommendation from the Berlin3 conference
Participants in the recent Berlin3 Open Access conference (Southampton, February 28 - March 1) will issue a consensus recommendation for signatories of the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to implement. The recommendation should be released soon, but Stevan Harnad and Andy Gass have posted a provisional version to the the AmSci OA Forum.
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, and
2. Encourage their researchers to publish their research articles in open access journals where a suitable journal exists and provide the support [i.e. pay the processing fees] to enable that to happen.
