The Berlin 10 Open Access Conference will be held at Stellenbosch, South Africa.  The Conference will be held at the Wallenberg Research Centre, Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS) from 7-8 November 2012.  Pre-conference workshops will be held on 6 November.  The theme of the Conference is Networked scholarship in a networked world: participation in Open Access.  Given that the Conference will be held in Africa, the sub-themes to be explored are concomitant with the development and transformative agenda of Open Access. 

The sub-themes are:

  • Transformation through Open Access
  • Open Access and other forms of openness
  • Benefits of Open Access for scholarship and wider society
  • Open Access and improving assessment of research and scholarly publishing
  • Networked scholarship

Stellenbosch University, in partnership with the Max Planck Society and other hosts, has the distinct pleasure of inviting policy and ‘funding’ communities, scientists and researchers and librarians to the Berlin 10 Open Access Conference
