About OS 2006

Open Scholarship 2006: New Challenges for Open Access Repositories is a companion European Conference to the OAI meetings at CERN in Geneva, and to the Nordic Scholarly Communication Conferences in Lund, Sweden, and is aimed at Librarians, University Administrators, funders, academics and technical specialists.

Open access and the development of OA repositories are transforming scholarship and bringing new opportunities and challenges for researchers, librarians and publishers.

This pan-European conference will focussed on the range of new challenges and opportunities faced by open access repositories.
