The Impact of Open Access Publishing on Scholarly Publications and Scientific Societies

In September 2018, a group of European funding agencies launched “Plan S,” an initiative starting in 2020 that requires that scientific publications resulting from research funded by European funding agencies public grants must be published in Plan S-compliant open access journals or platforms. In December 2018, a delegation led by Robert-Jan Smits, the European Commission’s special envoy on open access, visited with officials of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) and other U.S. federal agencies as part of an effort to gain broad support for Plan S.

Scientific societies are evaluating the impact of Plan S on the societies’ scholarly publications if Plan S or a similar open access policy were initiated in the U.S. Learn more about open access publishing, Plan S, and the potential impact of open access publishing models on scholarly publishing and scientific societies.
