Berlin 9 Open Access Conference Topics Announced

The organizing committee for the Berlin 9 Open Access Conference, to be held November 9-10, not in Berlin, but in Washington, DC, has announced the topics to be considered on the conference program.  (This is the first of the Berlin conferences to be held in North America; the name is taken from the 2003 Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities.)

  • Transforming Research through Open Online Access to Discovery Inputs and Outputs
  • Creation of Innovative New Opportunities for Scholarship and Business
  • The Impact of Open Access and Open Repositories on Research in the Humanities
  • Open Education: Linking Learning and Research through Open Access
  • Public Interaction: the Range and Power of Open Access for Citizen Science, Patients, and Large-scale Collaboration

Keynoters and speakers are currently being invited.
