New Report: “Open Access Potential and Uptake in the Context of Plan S – A Partial Gap Analysis”

Bianca Kramer and Jeroen Bosman from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and proprietors of the “Innovations in Scholarly Communication” blog have published a new partial gap analysis of Plan S.

The analysis was commissioned on behalf of the Dutch Research Council (NWO), a member of cOAlition S.

From the Innovations in Scholarly Communications Blog:

Today we released the report Open access potential and uptake in the context of Plan S – a partial gap analysis, which aims to provide cOAlition S with initial quantitative and descriptive data on the availability and usage of various open access options in different fields and subdisciplines, and, as far as possible, their compliance with Plan S requirements.

The reports builds on the work described in two of our 2018 posts: Towards a Plan S gap analysis? (1) Open access potential across disciplines and Towards a Plan S gap analysis? (2) Gold open access journals in WoS and DOAJ.
