Position de la SMF sur le plan S (The Position of SMF on Plan S)

From Google's English:
'The SMF joins forces with the EMS to denounce the fact that, in order to steer the monitoring of the plan for Open Science, the European Commission has chosen as a subcontractor the publisher Elsevier, thus creating a situation of serious conflict of interest :
This conflict of interest is aggravated by the excessively large influence this publisher has on this company in certain sectors of scientific publishing. Thus it is difficult to imagine how Elsevier could echo the difficulties of the smaller, more fragile and competing publishers.'
