    Open Science Days 2024

    January 29-30, 2024 I Harnack House Berlin


    The Max Planck Digital Library cordially invites you to participate in the Open Science Days 2024.

    Following the move to purely virtual realms in 2021, this time we will return, at least in part, to the familiar and also proven form of face-to-face meetings:

    The conference will be held as a hybrid meeting, with the attendance part again taking place at the Harnack House in Berlin. It is going to extend over one and a half days (January 29/30), with the whole day being Monday.

    Similar to what we did at the last conference, we will not focus on one specific aspect of Open Science, but instead look at recent developments across the broad spectrum.

    The conference language will be English.
    Participants will have the opportunity to present their own ideas, experiences, initiatives or activities and to discuss current topics related to Open Science.

    The participation fee is 100€ for on-site attendance and 40€ for digital attendance.

    Program and registration information will be announced in time on the Open Science Days Website.

    This year marks the 20th anniversary of the seminal Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities. In the upcoming 16th Berlin Open Access Conference, organized by the OA2020 Initiative and hosted by the Max Planck Society, we will return to the setting where the Berlin Declaration originated. There, we will refine and renew our approaches to achieving the vision for an open information environment in the service of science and society, with a particular focus on transformative agreements (TAs).

    The current growing body of TAs negotiated worldwide—from Peru to Canada, from South Africa to Norway, and from Australia to China—demonstrates that this approach to dismantling the deficiencies and inequities of the subscription-based system in scholarly publishing is both viable and scalable. With the first movers to integrate TAs into their national open access strategies now nearing their goals of open access to 100% of their research outputs and setting their sights on broader open science objectives, the way is paved for the global research community to swiftly forge ahead, together.

    The 16th Berlin Open Access Conference: Together for Transformation, will assemble national-level delegations, including scientists and scholars, senior library, higher education, funder and government leaders from 38 countries around the world. Together, they will assess the performance of scholarly publishers in meeting the objectives and expectations set out by the research community engaged in transformative open access negotiations and formulate collective next steps to shape an open scholarly publishing paradigm in the service of science that is transparent, inclusive, sustainable and financially equitable on a global scale.

    Outcomes of the conference will be shared with the broader research community on the B16 webpage.
