Plan S and Funding – what is going to change?

The next Open Access Talk "Plan S and funding - what is going to change?" will take place on 29th October 2020 from 2-3 pm (CET).

Plan S is an ambitious project of 23 funders worldwide to accelerate the transition of academic publishing towards full and immediate Open Access.

Johan Rooryck, Professor at Leiden University and Executive Director of cOAlition S, will briefly outline the rationale for the principles of Plan S. Beyond that, he will discuss its implementation for all grants awarded by cOAlition S funders from 1 January 2021, including the Horizon Europe framework. In his talk, Johan Rooryck will cover the following questions:

  • Which conditions do you need to fulfil to publish in a journal of your choice under Plan S?
  • What can the newly developed Journal Checker Tool do for you? 
  • How does the recent Rights Retention Strategy help you to keep the rights to your Author Accepted Manuscript?

In addition, Johan Rooryck will mention a number of other projects initiated by cOAlition S, such as the Price Transparency Framework to ensure that prices for publishing services become more transparent and fair or the commission of a study to identify concrete funding mechanisms to support and strengthen diamond journals and their platforms.

Researchers, librarians, funders and all other interested parties are invited to this Open Access Talk. The speaker will present in English, but it will be possible to ask questions in German.

On 29th October, we will open the room at 1:55 pm: https://meet.gwdg.de/b/hel-gak-at3

The series is an offer of the BMBF-funded project open-access.network. The TIB - Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology organizes and carries out this new monthly offer around Open Access.

Johan Rooryck ging in seinem Vortrag auf folgende Fragen ein:

  • Welche Bedingungen müssen Sie erfüllen, um in einer zu Plan S kompatiblen Zeitschrift zu publizieren?
  • Was kann das neu entwickelte Journal Checker Tool für Sie tun?
  • Wie hilft Ihnen die neue Rights Retention Strategy dabei, die Rechte an Ihrem eingereichten und akzeptierten Manuskript (Author Accepted Manuscript) zu behalten?
