Open access publishing – Beyond Plan S for the Global South

Kirstine's bookmarks 2019-05-15


Announced last year, Plan S is an initiative by a group of (mainly European) funders known as cOAlition S. They have committed to ensuring all scientific publications arising from research they fund are published in compliant open access journals or on compliant open access platforms from 2020.
