Endorsement of Plan S

The Nordic University Association (NUS) endorses the principles of Plan S and its aim to accelerate the transition to full and immediate Open Access to scientific publications.

NUS acknowledges that the timeframe of 2020 is a challenge, not least for the individual researcher. At the same time the timeframe is, in itself, a tool for promoting change among the publishers. NUS will therefore encourage its members to facilitate processes that address concerns from the academic community and that they engage in bridging the information gap regarding the transition to open publishing.
