By the decision of the Senate made on May 18 th 2016, the University of Banja Luka joined the list of signatories of the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in Sciences and Humanities.
The mission of disseminating knowledge is only partly fulfilled if the society is deprived of a simple and wide access to all necessary pieces of information. Therefore, the Declaration makes it possible for those in search of knowledge to gain it not only in traditional forms, but also through the new digital paradigm utilizing the Internet. The Open Access approach is defined as a comprehensive source of knowledge and cultural heritage confirmed by the global academic community.
