Zukunftsgespräche Open Access (Future Talks Open Access) is an annual event, which took place at Freie Universität Berlin for the first time this year.
(The event was held in German)
October 18, 2010: Together with experts from university libraries, scholarly societies, research foundations, publishing houses, scientific journals, and software developers participants discussed challenges and potentials of managing and publishing open access journals. There were presentations, a panel discussion and several workshops.
The results of the event will be summarized in form of “Desiderata” and will be made publicly available (in German only). Videos from the plenary sessions will soon be available on the event’s website.
October 19, 2010: A whole day workshop on Open Journal Systems (OJS) for those interested in learning more about the advantages of OJS for publishing open access journals took place. The participants benefited from the first-hand experiences of the two system developers who gave this workshop.
