What types of works fall under Plan S?

The scope of Plan S is primary peer reviewed research across all disciplines, including the natural and applied sciences (STEM), social sciences, and the arts and humanities. Plan S applies to all peer-reviewed publications that are based on results from research funded fully or partially by cOAlition S members. The current guidance specifies the principles of Plan S and provides paths for their implementation regarding scholarly articles. cOAlition S will, by the end of 2021, issue a statement on Plan S principles as they apply to monographs and book chapters, together with related implementation guidance.
