160 Elsevier journals become Plan S aligned Transformative Journals


cOAlition S is pleased to announce that 160 journals published by Elsevier are now registered as Plan S aligned Transformative Journals. These titles, including many by Cell Press, have committed to transitioning to fully open access respecting the transformative journal criteria as described in the cOAlition S Guidance on the implementation of Plan S.

In their public statement, Elsevier reiterates their commitment “to ensure that any author who wants to publish open access in any one of our journals, across all disciplines of research, can do so while also meeting their funder’s requirements”.
