2019 SSP Webinar: Plan S: Opportunities for the Future of Sc

Plan S: Opportunities for the Future of Scholarly Publishing

Tuesday, September 17
11:00 AM EDT 

A number of constructive discussions at SSP’s 2019 Annual Meeting regarding Plan S in particular and Open Access in general suggest that Plan S is the next tipping point in scholarly communications, serving as a catalyst to drive real change over the next decade. It may not result in the exact landscape sought by any single protagonist—authors, researchers, funders, societies, publishers, libraries, the public—but more will be achieved by these players working in concert than in conflict. 

In this webinar, SSP seeks to move past familiar pro and con arguments surrounding OA and instead present a frank, positive discussion of the potential opportunities that might exist or are yet to be created by societies and commercial publishers to support a shift to open publication and transform their revenue streams. How can all of the parties collaborate with available tools and resources to attain not only broader open access to, but truly global dissemination of, scholarly content? Our speakers will address this question and more as they explore the future of Plan S and OA publishing.
