Coalition S – Implementation

The cOAlition S has released an implementation guidance on Plan S. Eleven European research funding organizations published Plan S in September 2018. It defines ten principles for the transition by 2020 to open access.

The main roads for Plan S are:

  • Publication in Open Access Journals or Platforms;
  • Deposit of Versions of Record (VoR) or Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM) in Open Access repositories without embargo;
  • Publication in ‘hybrid’ journals only under transformative agreements;

For the deposition of scholarly content in open access repositories: Preprint servers are not suffucient to be compliant.

OA Publishing with Oxford

The Max Planck Society established a new agreement with Oxford University Press (OUP) which includes an open access element. Max Planck authors are allowed to publish Open Access in selected OUP journals under a free Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY). The publication charges will be directly and fully funded by the MPS as of submission date January 1, 2019.

The following journals, among others, are part of the agreement:
