The Academy and the Dutch Research Council (NWO) are organising a webinar on how NWO intends to implement Plan S and what choices will be made in that regard.


Deze video-opname is ook beschikbaar via ons YouTube-kanaal.

In 2018, NWO joined cOAlition S, an international group of research funders that intend to use Plan S to accelerate the transition to Open Access. Last year, cOAlition S adopted the final version of its ‘Guidance on the implementation of Plan S’. Since then, NWO has fleshed out its policy in this area. The new rules will take effect for projects awarded as of January 2021.

During the webinar, NWO President Stan Gielen will explain the proposed implementation plan, followed by comments from researchers in various fields. Leiden University Professor Johan Rooryck, Open Access Champion for cOAlition S, will review international developments regarding the group.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
