cOAlition S acknowledges the Open Access Policy Refresh from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and welcomes its ongoing commitment to work in partnership with other funders to make all research articles open by default.

The Foundation’s policy refresh expands to encompass all funded manuscripts which must be made available without any embargo and openly licenced.  Although individual APC payments will no longer be paid, the BMGF are committed to supporting other innovative ways to fund publication services. This approach is in line with the aspirations of the “Beyond article-based changes” multi-stakeholder group – established by cOAlition S in partnership with Jisc and PLOS –which seeks to identify business models and arrangements that enable equitable participation in knowledge-sharing.
