Spotlight: Harvard Library and MIT Libraries provide recommendations for Plan S implementation

Plan S is an initiative for open access that was launched in September 2018. It requires that, from 2020, scientific publications that result from research funded by cOAlition S members must be published in compliant open-access journals or platforms, or deposited in compliant open-access repositories. cOAlition S, a group of national research funding organizations and charitable foundations who have agreed to implement the 10 principles of Plan S in a coordinated way, has solicited public feedback on its  guidance for implementation. Harvard Library and the MIT Libraries have jointly issued the following recommendations in response.
