Putting Open Access on Germany's Agenda for the Future
In January 2011, German Chancellor Angela Merkel initiated an online "Dialogue About Germany's Future" (Dialog über Deutschlands Zukunft) with citizens. The results of the dialogue are due to be published in June 2012. Christian Reinboth has posted a proposal entitled Freier Zugang zu öffentlich finanzierter Forschung Open Access ("Open Access to publicly funded research") on the Dialogue platform dialog-ueber-deutschland.de. To support the proposal, give it the "thumbs up" here: https://www.dialog-ueber-deutschland.de/DE/20-Vorschlaege/30-Wie-Lernen/Einzelansicht/vorschlaege_einzelansicht_node.html?cms_idIdea=192You can also post a comment. If the proposal receives enough support, it could make it onto the Government's agenda. For more information, visit Reinboth's Scienceblog.
