ALPSP Networking: Plan S

A discussion and networking event for ALPSP members.

Mary Ward House, 5 - 7 Tavistock Place, London, WC1H 9SN, United Kingdom (map)

Chair: Peter Ashman, CEO, BMJ and Chair, ALPSP Council


On 4 September 2018, Science Europe announced Plan S, a proposal for the transition of European-funded research to a fully open access environment, in line with the principles of open Science.  ALPSP issued a briefing paper on 21 September to outline the key issues and invited feedback from members on the proposal and how it might affect their organisations. Since then there has been much discussion and engagement between the various stakeholders as the detail of the proposals has developed. ALPSP is working with Wellcome and UKRI to engage a consultant to explore strategies and business models through which learned societies could adopt and thrive under Plan S. Click here for more details.

As a next step, ALPSP is pleased to host a speaker-led panel discussion and networking event to explore some of issues around the launch of Plan S, its implementation and impact for societies, publishers and researchers.  The evening will be chaired by Peter Ashman, Chair of ALPSP. Chatham House rules will apply.


Robert Kiley, Head of Open Research, Wellcome Trust

Sophia Anderton, Head of Publishing, British Institute of Radiology
