The recently published guidance for the implementation of Plan S offers welcome new details on how full and immediate Open Access to research publications would be achieved under this new initiative.
As LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries) stated in September, when Plan S was first announced, they fully support the ambitions of Plan S. However, they make recommendations on the three scenarios to reach full and immediate open access:
- Open Access Journals or Open Access Platforms
- Deposit of Scholarly Articles in Open Access Repositories
- Transformative Agreements
