B10 – Networked scholarship in a networked world: participation in Open Access

November 6, 2012 9:00 AM UTCtoNovember 8, 2012 5:00 PM UTC

Berlin 10 Open Access Conference, Stellenbosch University, South Africa


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. As a result, Berlin Open Access conferences have been convened annually since 2004. The conference series now takes place in locations around the world; to date Germany, Switzerland, England, Italy, France, China and – most recently – the USA – have hosted this prestigious gathering.


The upcoming Berlin 10 Open Access Conference will mark the first such meeting to take place in Africa. The meeting will be held at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS), Wallenberg Centre, Stellenbosch, South Africa, from 6 – 8 November 2012.

The Conference is an international forum, and this year’s location provides a unique opportunity for African organisations to fully participate in shaping the program and ensure a lively, inclusive, and productive conference.

Berlin 10 is being organised by representatives from the science, humanities, research, funding and policy communities.
