Episode 3 is recorded on January 24th, at a meeting organised by the University Library, to inform the VU research community about the implications of Plan-S, and to listen to their arguments. We invited three stakeholders to give their view on the plan. VU Rector magnificus Vinod Subramaniam, representing the University board - Professor Hans Berends from the VU School of Business and Economics, representing a part of the research community - and Hans de Jonge, Advisor Open Science at our national research funding agency NWO. But first: … what is Plan-S all about? … Last fall 2018, a group of national research funding organisations in Europe, including NWO & ERC, they call themselves cOAlition-S, launched a bold plan to speedup the transition towards full and immediate Open Access. The idea behind this is that research funded by public money must be available to the public. When Plan-S starts in January 2020, researchers can then only apply for funding, if the articles are published in journals that are fully Open Access, or, journals that allow immediate selfarchiving in repositories. You can read more about this plan at http://www.coalition-s.org Meanwhile, the Dutch University association, VSNU, are also working towards full open access, but have a different approach. They use so called “big deals” to force publishers to make hybrid accessibility constructions, where Dutch authors can make articles openly available in normally closed subscription journals.
