I publish a journal that does not charge any publication fees (aka ‘Diamond’ OA). Do I have to submit Price Transparency data?

The Plan S requirements for price transparency state “When Open Access publication fees are applied, they must be commensurate with the publication services delivered and the structure of such fees must be transparent[Principle 5].

By operating a no-fee model, there is no Plan S requirement to make your pricing openly available. Such publishers may choose to make their pricing data available.
