Jisc Applauds Plan to Commit to Full OA by 2020

Jisc published an endorsement of cOAlition S, an initiative from 11 national research funding organizations—supported by the European Commission, including the European Research Council (ERC)—“to make full and immediate Open Access to research publications a reality. It is built around Plan S, which consists of one target and 10 principles.” The goal is to ensure that by Jan. 1, 2020, “scientific publications that result from research funded by public grants provided by participating national and European research councils and funding bodies, must be published in compliant Open Access Journals or on compliant Open Access Platforms.”

Liam Earney, the director of Jisc Collections, says, “This announcement is really positive, not only in removing hurdles for the research community, but for society as a whole. People will be able to access current research findings while they are still relevant, engaging the public in the UK’s leading higher education and research.

“We will be building on our existing work in these areas and continuing our dialogue with funders to apply our extensive knowledge of scholarly communications and the journal and library supply chains, and to discuss how national services such as Jisc MonitorCORE and RIOXX can contribute to national monitoring that is developed alongside UK OA policies.”
