Outline[edit]

I think we should try to expand this entry. Could anyone suggest an outline? Tesolchina (talk) 09:36, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Although not knowledgeable enough to suggest an outline, I came across this Jisc article, "Bringing the UK’s Open Access Research Outputs Together", about its [downloadable report] on challenges since the Berlin Declaration on OA to build an "open mirror". Litjade (talk) 16:35, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Great update[edit]

Thanks Nsteffel for the update. Can you say anything briefly about why the Max Planck society is a good source to cite for this information? I wonder if they have an obvious affiliation to this statement, like being its caretakers. They seem removed enough from the statement as a consensus of individuals but I thought I would ask.

I'm no expert but I think calling them the caretakers of the Berlin Declaration would be fair. They hosted and helped organize the initial conference which led to the declaration and seem to host a lot of the attendant records like the conference details, list of signatories, information on the followup conferences, etc. Nsteffel (talk) 17:45, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Everything seems in order. Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:11, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
