Plan S


Making full and immediate Open Access a reality

Can I comply with Plan S by making my article freely available in my institutional repository? / Does Plan S support the ‘green’ route to OA?

Yes. Authors can publish in a subscription journal and make either the final published version (Version of Record, VoR) or the Author’s Accepted Manuscript (AAM) openly available in a repository. For details see Guidance on the Implementation of Plan S. If you are a member of a higher education institution your library may be able to advise.
