Illustre Unterstützung für Open Access

Open Access ist längst als integraler Teil der Landschaft des wissenschaftlichen Publizierens verankert.

Aktuell steht hierfür das letzte Woche veröffentlichte Statement der Wissenschaftsminister der G8-Staaten.
Zwei der vier dort angesprochenen Punkte unterstützen explizit den Weg zu Open Science:
Expanding Access to Scientific Research Results

Open Scientific Research Data

“Open enquiry is at the heart of scientific endeavour, and rapid technological change has profound implications for the way that science is both conducted and its results communicated. It can provide society with the necessary information to solve global challenges. We are committed to openness in scientific research data to speed up the progress of scientific discovery, create innovation, ensure that the results of scientific research are as widely available as practical, enable transparency in science and engage the public in the scientific process.”

“We share the intention, therefore, to continue our cooperative efforts and will consider how best to address the global promotion of increasing public access to the results of publicly funded published research including to peer-reviewed published research and research data.”

Bereits im April veröffentlichte Science Europe, der Zusammenschluß europäischer Wissenschaftsorganisationen die “Principles on the Transition to Open Access to Research Publications“.
Im Mai legte das Global Research Council (GRC, internationale Forschungs- und Förderorganisationen), in Berlin seinen „Action Plan towards Open Access to Publications“ vor.
