B15 Conference

15th BERLIN OPEN ACCESS CONFERENCE

Announcement

The University of California and the Open Access 2020 Initiative are planning the 15th Berlin Open Access Conference to be held in the Spring of 2021.

With the uncertainties of the continuing global health crisis in mind, the Conference will be held in person in San Francisco if conditions permit, or will otherwise be conducted virtually to allow for robust participation. We hope that postponing the conference from its usual fall / winter date will allow the global research community to come together with renewed clarity of purpose and energized by the great strides made in the time since the 14th Berlin Open Access Conference, through transformative agreements and related transitional open access models that redirect former subscription funds to support open access publishing of research outputs.

Further updates will be provided in due course, and queries regarding the conference can be directed to cdl@www.cdlib.org or contact@oa2020.org.
