Belgian Officials Endorse OA

Next week, 13 senior officials in Belgian research and education - Ministers, and Rectors - will sign the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge.

This is hugely significant; the signing will take place two days before the EC-hosted conference, Scientific Publishing in the European Research Area, in the context of the EU Petition for guaranteed public access to publicly-funded research results

Details can be found on Open Access News.
