Since 2018 Forte has supported the implementation of Plan S and open access to research publications. The international consortium: cOAlition S, now invites researchers to answer a survey about how the plan has affected their publishing practices.
The results of publicly funded research should be accessible to all. This is why Forte is part of cOAlition S, an international consortium of research funders working for open access to research publications. Together, we support the initiative Plan S.
As a first step in the evaluation process of the initiative cOAlition S has opened a survey to gather feedback from the research community about their experiences when publishing according to the principles of Plan S. The survey is anonymous and aims at developing better support for researchers in their publications practices.
It is of great value for Forte that many researchers who have funding from us get the possibility to respond to the survey.
