HHMI Goes OA Starting in 2022

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is adopting a new OA policy effective Jan. 1, 2022. It “will require all HHMI laboratory heads to publish in a manner that makes their research articles freely available on the publication date under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY).” They have a number of options, which are outlined in the policy, to meet the OA mandate. The policy aligns with Plan S principles.

“Science is critically dependent on access to the information, data, and ideas contained in published primary research articles,” says Erin O’Shea, HHMI’s president. “We believe we can best advance HHMI’s mission, including the discovery and sharing of new scientific knowledge, by sharing new science freely and immediately. We want all scientists to be able to discuss, analyze, and build upon each other’s work.”
