16th Berlin Open Access Conference Outcomes Now Available Online
From a Post by the Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) Website:
In early June, national-level delegations representing research communities from 38 countries across six continents gathered at the 16th Berlin Open Access Conference (B16).
Hosted by the Max Planck Society, initiator the Berlin conference series, and organized by the Max Planck Digital Library’s Open Access 2020 Initiative (OA2020), the conference was held as a strategy meeting of global actors in research communication committed to advancing viable strategies to replace the subscription paywall model underlying the bulk of today’s scholarly journals with transparent and sustainable models that deliver immediate and open access to the results of research, enabling maximum scientific and societal impact.
