Berlin 4, Potsdam-Golm, 2006

Challenges, Experiences, Perspectives in an Open Access World

Die Berlin 4 Konferenz Open Access wurde im März 2006 in Potsdam am Max-Planck-Institut für Gravitationsphysik veranstaltet. Einer der thematischen Schwerpunkte der Konferenz war der freie Zugang zu wissenschaftlichen Rohdaten um einerseits die Transparenz in der wissenschaftlichen Forschung, andererseits grenz- und disziplinübergreifende Kooperationen zu fördern.

Aus der Programmankündigung:

"The aim of this international conference is to bring together the various initiatives and key players within the Open Access movement. Key-notes, lectures and reports will cover a wide range of subjects. Authors’ attitudes towards Open Access are addressed as well as issues with regard of  Open Access to scientific (raw) data. One session will be devoted to “Open Access to cultural heritage”.

Visions of new forms of scholarly communications will be presented as well as first concrete experiences. Specific attention will be given to the issues of Open Access in developing countries.

Among the speakers are well-known Open Access experts, providing an review of recent Open Access developments, scientists from different fields like biology or astrophysics, reporting on their experiences with Open Access.
