Richard Poynder has just written the following astute article on the
outcome of the Berlin 3 meeting in Southampton on implementing the
Berlin Declaration:

    Time to Walk the Talk?
    Richard Poynder
    ABSTRACT: Berlin 3, held in the UK in March as a follow-up meeting
    for monitoring implementation of the 2003 Berlin Declaration,
    provided a timely opportunity to feel the pulse of the Open Access
    (OA) movement. How does the patient look? On paper, he looks
    good. Indeed, he turned out to be fitter than expected: instead of
    succumbing to factional disputes and bickering, delegates at the
    meeting agreed a short, very practical action plan for implementing
    the Declaration. But can the movement now follow through?
