Expression of Interest
in the Large-scale Implementation of Open Access
to Scholarly Journals
Building on the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities and
on the progress that has been achieved so far, we are pursuing the large-scale implementation of free
online access to, and largely unrestricted use and re-use of scholarly research artils.
We recognize and endorse various ways of implementing open access (CA), including the
development of new OA publishing platforms, archives and repositories In scholarly journal
publishing, OA has gained a substantial and increasing volume. Most journals, however, are still
based on the subscription business model with its inherent deficiencies in terns of access, cost-
efficiency, transparency, and restrictions of use.
To gain the full benefits of OA and enable a smooth. swift and scholarly oriented transition, the
existing corpus of scholarly journals should be converted from subscription to open access. Recent
developments and studies indicate that this transition process can be realized within the framework of
currently available resources.
With this statement, we express our interest in establishing an international initiative for the OA
transformation of scholarly journals, and we agree upon the following key aspects.
They are leading an effort to recruit other institutions to sign a non-binding "expression of
interest" by which these institutions pledge to make a good-faith effort to devise and
implement practical strategies and actions for transitioning their funding for subscribing to
journals to supporting open access. What sort of support are we talking about?
Here’s what’s next.
