Planning for Plan S: a perspective from across the pond

Thu 24 Oct 2019


The principles of Plan S are set to change what funders require from researchers, placing a much greater emphasis on immediate Open Access and other open practices. While we've been busy preparing here in the UK, our colleagues in the US have not been idle.

Micah Vandegrift is the Open Knowledge Librarian at NC State University Libraries, where he works on community-building and advocating for Open Research. He will be sharing his perspective on the likely impact of Plan S on libraries, publishers, researchers and repositories.

Following a 20-30 minutes talk, there will be an opportunity to discuss these issues with others in the room.

If you would like to refresh your knowledge of Plan S before the seminar, check out our Plan S Factsheet ( or webinar (
