10 Jahre ‘Berliner Erklärung über den offenen Zugang zu wissenschaftlichem Wissen’

Zu den Erstunterzeichnern der ‘Berliner Erklärung über den offenen Zugang zu wissenschaftlichem Wissen‘ gehörten vor 10 Jahren alle deutschen Wissenschaftsorganisationen.
Inzwischen liest sich die Liste der Unterzeichner wie ein Who’s who der weltweiten Wissenschaftslandschaft.

Viel hat sich seither getan, die Erklärung ist aber in ihren Wortlaut längst nicht veraltet. Einige Auszüge:

“The Internet has fundamentally changed the practical and economic realities of distributing scientific knowledge and cultural heritage. For the first time ever, the Internet now offers the chance to constitute a global and interactive representation of human knowledge, including cultural heritage and the guarantee of worldwide access.”

“Our mission of disseminating knowledge is only half complete if the information is not made widely and readily available to society.”

“The author(s) and right holder(s) of such contributions grant(s) to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, right of access to, and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works, in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship …”

“A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials,… in an appropriate standard electronic format is deposited (and thus published) in at least one online repository using suitable technical standards … that is supported and maintained by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable open access, unrestricted distribution, inter operability, and long-term archiving.”
