cOAlition S Celebrates the Plan S Initiative's 5th Anniversary

Johan Rooryck, executive director of cOAlition S, shared a blog post marking 5 years of Plan S. It states the following:

In September 2018, a group of national research funding organizations, with the support of the European Commission, rallied behind an initiative to make research publications openly accessible to all: Plan S. These visionary organizations came together as cOAlition S, and adopted a set of 10 principles that were intended to function as a catalyst for the accelerated transition to full and immediate Open Access. For most cOAlition S members, the policies and tools that support the implementation of Plan S came into effect in 2021. 

Although the full impact of these policies will still take several years to unfold, it is a good moment to reflect on what has been achieved so far. 

In addition, cOAlition S announced that it will be hosting a free webinar (registration required) for the 5th anniversary of Plan S on Nov. 2, 2023. It “will bring together funders, researchers, and experts from the scholarly communication field to discuss how Plan S has developed since its launch as well as what lies ahead for the future of scholarly communication.”

For more information, read the blog post and the news item.
