Feedback on the Implementation Guidance of Plan S Generates Large Public Response
(Brussels, February 20 2019) Over 600 individuals
and organisations provided feedback to
cOAlition S on the
implementation guidance of Plan S. Originating from over 40 countries,
respondents providing feedback include researchers, librarians and libraries,
publishers and editors, universities, learned societies, research funders and
performers, and other interested citizens and organisations.
“We would like to thank the individuals and organisations who
took the time to react and provide feedback. Never before have our diverse
scholarly communities seen a debate on Open Access and the future of scholarly
communications play out on such a global scale” said David Sweeney, Executive
Chair of Research England (UKRI)
and co-chair of the cOAlition S task force.
Responses are now being analysed and will feed into an
updated version of the Plan S implementation guidance. An initial analysis of
the feedback will be released in the spring and all feedback responses will be
made openly available.
