Open Science, Scientific Publishing and Plan S

Impact and implementation of the European policies for open access to scientific publications

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

at the CLORA premises

The talks will mostly be delivered in english


The goal of Plan S is to make publicly funded scientific publications freely accessible and reusable in Europe and worldwide. Its approach is based on the voluntary participation of funders. To date, Plan S has been signed by 13 national research and innovation funders and two foundations, with the support of the European Commission and the ERC Scientific Council. The French ANR is one of the signatories.

In a written statement on 4 September 2018, Carlos Moedas called for a coordinated effort at the European level to make progress in the transition to open access to scientific publications. Plan S is among the numerous initiatives designed to achieve this goal.

Plan S generated many reactions from the research community, both positive (see for example the reactions of the EUA, LERU, LIBER, YERUN and EURODOC) and negative (see for example the open letter on Plan S signed by over 1600 researchers.)

Most would agree on the legitimacy of the goal of the plan, the widespread access to knowledge, but its implementation raises many questions, one of which is at the center of our afternoon session : in Europe and in the world, how to build a viable and sustainable scientific publishing model ?

During this event, we wish to give our speakers and participants a forum to discuss the various implications of Plan S, particularly with regard to the transformation of the traditional scientific publishing model, confronted with the digital revolution and the growing demand for open access to knowledge. The European Commission will also give us an overview of some of their own policy initiatives to promote Open Science.
