Berlin Declaration on
Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities
http://www.zim.mpg.de/openaccess-berlin/berlindeclaration.html

Here are its pertinent passages, distilling the essence
[while flagging the points that are still too vague/ambiguous
for a practical, concrete implementation]


“Open access [means]:

“1. free... [online, full-text] access [to what?]

“2. A complete version of the [open-access] work [ = what?] ... is deposited... in at least one online repository... to enable open access, unrestricted distribution, [OAI-] interoperability, and long-term archiving.

“[W]e intend to... encourag[e]… our researchers/grant recipients to
publish [?] their work [?] according to the principles [?]... of the open
access paradigm [?] .”
