Get Smart About "Plan S" With Rob Johnson


Tuesday, 2 October 2018
10:00 - 10:30 am EDT

“Plan S” was announced just weeks ago and now everyone in scholarly publishing will talk about it at Frankfurt Book Fair.

An initiative of 11 European national research funding organizations, “Plan S” puts pressure on Open Access publishing business models by capping article fees, ending embargoes and withdrawing support for “hybrid” OA journals.

Register now for a complimentary webinar featuring OA expert Rob Johnson of the UK’s Research Consulting on Tuesday 2 October at 1000 EDT/1500 BST/1600 CEST (1400 GMT).

In 30 minutes, Johnson will give you all the details and the insights you’ll need about “Plan S” before your OA meetings start at Frankfurt Book Fair (or stay home and be ready too!).

The “S” in “Plan S” can stand for “science, speed, solution, shock,” says Robert-Jan Smits, the European Commission’s OA special envoy.

But you can make it stand for “Smart.”
