Yes, via the Plan S. movement.

The removal of journal paywalls and the challenge to traditional publishing practices.

Here’s how it works:

  • Researcher Funder should publish their peer-reviewed papers outside journal paywalls.
  • Under a liberal licence so that anyone can download, reuse or republish the paper. 
  • Researchers can publish their final paper OA in a journal, or they can make the accepted, peer-reviewed version of their manuscript available online in an approved repository. 
  • cOAlition S has rolled out a ‘Journal Checker Tool’ that promises to let researchers see their compliant publishing options for any journal. Need to know more? Review, here

The key benefits of publishing Gold AO:

  • Freely available to a global audience without delay
  • Potentially more views, downloads and citations
