If you replied YES to all of the above questions, your journal is likely to be eligible to the Plan S Transformative Journal status, and you can proceed with completing the application form below.
The Plan S Transformative Journal status has been specifically developed to provide subscription or hybrid journals that publish peer-reviewed research output with a path towards full Open Access publishing. For other types of journals, there are other routes to Plan S compliance. If you are here because your journal is open access, and you want to make sure that the Journal Checker Tool shows it as offering Plan S compliance to your authors, please check our guidance to Plan S compliance.
Please note that the timeframe for a new Transformative Journal to appear in the Journal Checker Tool may take up to two weeks depending on the size of the application.
