New updates on Plan S
Learned society publishers will accelerate their transition to Open Access (OA). Two members of cOAlition S, Wellcome Trust and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) are working with the Association of Learned & Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) to support the implementation of Plan S. As a part of this plan, a toolkit has been launched.
Malavika Legge, Director of Publishing at the Biochemical Society, said “Learned societies play a vital role in supporting researchers and contributing to a vibrant research ecosystem. We are keen to transition to OA but in order to do so must find sustainable approaches and business models.”
