cOAlition S

cOAlition S is a group of 28 national research funders, European and international organisations and charitable foundations) who have agreed to implement the 10 principles of Plan S in a coordinated way, together with the European Commission. These funders actively align their Open Access policies, with the single goals of making sure that all scholarly publications on the results from research funded by public or private grants provided by national, regional and international research councils and funding bodies, are published in Open Access Journals, on Open Access Platforms, or made immediately available through Open Access Repositories without embargo. To this end, cOAlition S is also pursuing more equitable solutions to Open Access, including Diamond OA.

As project co-coordinator, cOAlition S is involved in all work packages.
