Below is a web series of powerpoint slides. The first one is the excerpted
core of the Berlin Declaration, followed by a series of suggestions
about how the Declaration could be implemented by universities and
research-funders. Please note that the implementation suggestions are
my own; they are *not* part of the Berlin Declaration.

The original powerpoints for the above are also available and permission
is granted to anyone who wishes to use them in promoting open access. They
are part of a longer series of powerpoints, also linked below, for which
permission is likewise granted to use them to promote open access.
(Please give credit to Tim Brody, my doctoral student, who helped me
create them):

Dual Open-Access Strategy:
    BOAI-2: Publish your article in a suitable open-access journal
            whenever one exists.
    BOAI-1: Otherwise, publish your article in a suitable toll-access
            journal and also self-archive it.
