In conjunction with the Berlin 11 Open Access meeting, the Max Planck Society and Right to Research Coalition hosted the first-ever satellite conference to the Berlin conference series specifically for students and early stage researchers on November 18th in Berlin, Germany.

In order to support continued adoption of the principles outlined in the Berlin Declaration, as well as to track progress on their implementation, the original signatories agreed to support regular follow-up meetings.

The main goal of this session, as stated by chair Nicole Dewandre (Advisor for Societal Issues at DG CNECT), was to explore how ICT has changed and continues to change our methods of scientific data acquisition and interchange of knowledge between scientific and regular community.

This resource outlines the core components of open access (e.g., reader rights, reuse rights, copyrights, author posting rights, etc.) across the continuum from “open access” to “restricted access”.
