Read the Brisbane Declaration on Open Access

The Open Access movement emerged from four main general declarations:

- The Budapest Declaration;
- The Berlin Declaration;
- The Bethesda Statement on Open Access Publishing;
and
- The Salvador Declaration: The Developing World Perspective.

Now, a new one was born. However, different from the other this is a call for a government - Australia - to move forward into the full adoption of Open Access to papers, but also to data.


Brisbane Declaration


Preamble

The participants recognize Open Access as a strategic enabling activity, on which research and inquiry will rely at international, national, university, group and individual levels.

Strategies

Therefore the participants resolve the following as a summary of the basic strategies that Australia must adopt:

1. Every citizen should have free open access to publicly funded research, data and knowledge.

2. Every Australian university should have access to a digital repository to store its research outputs for this purpose.

3. As a minimum, this repository should contain all materials reported in the Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC).

4. The deposit of materials should take place as soon as possible, and in the case of published research articles should be of the author’s final draft at the time of acceptance so as to maximize open access to the material.
