Mirror of International Conference on Strategies and Policies for Open Access to Scientific Information

This temporary mirror has been set up to provide different versions of the PDF files available from the official conference site at http://libraries.csdl.ac.cn/Meeting/MeetingID.asp?MeetingID=7&MeetingMenuID=51.

A number of people have been unable to read the PDF files at that site, and so this mirror has translated them to an earlier version of PDF (from v1.4 to v1.3)
