OPEN ACCESS IN BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH SEPTEMBER 2012 10/25/2012  The Budapest Open Access Initiative Open Access Week 2012Definition of open access“By ‘open access’ to this literature, we mean its free availability on the public Internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the Internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.” 2

OPEN ACCESS IN BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH SEPTEMBER 2012 10/25/2012 Professor Josef Syka, Chair of the Science Policyhttp://goo.gl/2eh32 Briefing and EMRC Core Group member, commented: Open Access Week 2012 “The turnover of information in biomedical sciences is very fast, so rapid delivery of information is needed at a fair price. Open access publishing has the potential to revolutionise the way in which biomedical scientists publish and access the latest results. The EMRC supports open access publishing as the ultimate goal to maximise the discoverability process, the access to and the re-use of biomedical research results in Europe.” 8
