National progress towards open access UUK (2017) Monitoring the transition to open access. http://www.universitiesuk.ac.uk/policy-and-analysis/reports/Documents/2017/monitoring-transition-open-access-2017.pdf Issues to Address:UK policy environment Changing researcher and university behavior Leading to significant progress on OA
Resulting in increasing costs Stimulating move to hybrid journals rather than fully OA Limited evidence on open data Need to consider promotion and recruitment criteria Plan S: Making full and immediate Open Access a reality M25 Libraries David Sweeney Sldes last updated: 3rd Sept 2019
SCIENCE EUROPE I 01/27/2020 cOAlition S I 23 Agenda Plan S and summary of changes to the Implementation Plan Working with key stakeholders Other activities
Questions cOAlition S I 24 Plan S : Built on strong principles No publication should be locked behind a paywall OA must be immediate, i.e. no embargo periods No copyright transfer; publication under a CC BY license by default Transparency about pricing and contracts
Funders commit to support publication fees at a reasonable level Multiple routes to OA compliance Commitment to assess research outputs based on their intrinsic merit and NOT venue of publication cOAlition S I 25 Implementation guidance key changes (1)
Timeline extended by one year: Calls published as of 1 January 2021 onwards Transformative arrangements will be supported until end of 2024 Greater clarity on compliance routes: cOAlition S supports a diversity of business models Plan S is NOT just about Gold OA Options for range of transformative arrangements are supported Transformative agreements and transformative journals)
cOAlition S I 26 Implementation guidance key changes (2) Funders commit to implement DORA principles when undertaking research assessment Greater emphasis on the transparency of OA publication fees Option to request a CC-BY-ND licence as an exception
Technical requirements for journals, platforms and repositories revised and simplified cOAlition S I 27 cOAlition S: alignment of Open Access policies cOAlition S I 28

Will help promote and develop Plan S and advise cOAlition S on the ways to implement the transition to full and immediate Open Access as smoothly as possible cOAlition S I 29 Working with key stakeholders:
researchers Working with researcher groups to ensure we understand their concerns and find ways of mitigating them Seeking to work with Global Young Academy (and others) on developing indicators to measure impact of Plan S on ECRs. A Task Force has been established to
progress this. Ambassador network established to engage with research community and share concerns with cOAlition S leadership team cOAlition S I 30 Working with key stakeholders: publishers
In active discussions with publishers such as the Society Publishers Coalition, Springer Nature and others to explore the transformative journal model cOAlition S I 31 Working with key stakeholders: learned societies Wellcome and UKRI, in partnership with ALPSP have
funded a study to explore alternative business model for learned society publishers Key deliverable will be the development of a model Transformative Agreement and implementation framework Expectation is that a number of Societies will this Agreement to offer TAs as early as 2020
cOAlition S I 32 Working with key stakeholders: other OA initiatives Plan S is acting as a spur to encourage a transition to OA as witnessed by the
upsurge in transformative agreements cOAlition S I 33 Other activities Transparent Pricing Plan S Guidance specifies:
cOAlition S, in partnership with publisher representatives and other stakeholders, will define the various services (e.g., triaging, peer review, editorial work, copy editing) publishers will be asked to price. Wellcome - in partnership with UKRI and on behalf of cOAlition S - have appointed Information Power to lead a collaborative project to develop a framework for these communications cOAlition S aims to help make the nature and prices of OA
publishing services more transparent, and to enable conversations and comparisons that will build confidence amongst customers that prices are fair and reasonable The project will not explore costs, nor current or future cOAlition S I 34 Other activities cOAlition S Secretariat Establishing a formal cOAltion S Secretariat /Office to ensure
that we can appoint staff, award contracts etc to take forward the work associated with the implementation of Plan S Budget defined which will be funded by cOAlition S members who are able to make a financial contribution No obligation for cOAlition S funders to make a financial contributions Office expected to be up and running by January 2020 cOAlition S I 35
Other activities https://www.coalition-s.org/work plan/ cOAlition S I 36 Questions and discussion
OA - a global transition Plan S one main shared objective After 1 January 2021 scientific publications on the results from research funded by public grants provided by national and European research councils and funding bodies, must be published in compliant Open Access Journals or on compliant Open Access Platforms. Where next?
UKRI review of open access policies: A future open access policy for UKRI Cap on APCs? Preference for gold or green? Preference for fully OA journals? Linkage to off-setting policy? Monographs and other long form outputs REF-after-next policy (will apply to monographs published from 1 Jan 2021 onwards) Open research data Publication practice and author choice
