cOAlition S develops “Rights Retention Strategy” to safeguard researchers’ intellectual ownership rights and suppress unreasonable embargo periods | Plan S

Publishers commonly require authors to sign exclusive publishing agreements which restrict what authors can do with their research findings, including making articles Open Access in line with their funders’ requirements. To address this problem, cOAlition S has developed a Rights Retention Strategy, which will empower their funded researchers to publish in their journal of choice, including subscription journals, and provide Open Access in compliance with Plan S.

One of the three Plan S routes to achieve full and immediate Open Access is via repositories, where, as a minimum, the Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM) is made openly available under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) licence or equivalent, without any embargo.

The Rights Retention Strategy is designed to ensure that all cOAlition S funded scholarly publications are available as Open Access. In practical terms, it enables researchers to retain sufficient intellectual ownership rights in their work to make the AAM Open Access at the time of publication with a CC BY license….”

Plan S Rights Retention Strategy | Plan S

“cOAlition S has developed a Rights Retention Strategy to give researchers supported by a cOAlition S Organisation the freedom to publish in their journal of choice, including subscription journals, whilst remaining fully compliant with Plan S.

cOAlition S Organisations will facilitate this by changing their grant conditions to require that a Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC BY[1]) is applied to all Author Accepted Manuscripts (AAMs[2]) or Versions of Record (VoR[3]) reporting original research, supported in whole or in part by their funding….

[A]ll research articles which arise from funding from a cOAlition S Organisation must be licensed CC BY before they are submitted to a journal for publication….

This strategy applies to all manuscripts submitted for publication from researchers funded by a cOAlition S Organisation. However, it is especially relevant when submissions are made to journals whose publisher does not yet offer their authors the opportunity to make the VoR of research articles Open Access in a way that is aligned with Plan S. It, therefore, enables to continue to seek publication in their preferred journal by making the AAM available in a repository at the time of publication….”

Open Science Implementation: the DOs and DON’Ts. | Zenodo

“On Friday, 29 May, LIBER organized a virtual Learning and Train-the-Trainer activity (LTTA) for its partners within the INOS project: Integrating Open and Citizen Science into active learning approaches in Higher Education. The activity aimed at strengthening the project partners’ skills to design and deliver Open Knowledge and Open Innovation Activities further along in the project. The session on Open Science  Implementation was called‘Open Science implementation: the DOs and DON’Ts’  and was lead by two trainers:

Colleen Campbell, Scholarly Communication and Engagement Advisor, Coordinator of Open Access 2020 Initiative, Max Planck Digital Library 

José Carvalho, Project Manager, Manager of the National Open Access network of repositories, and national initiative to promote innovation in the scientific publications landscape, University of Minho…”

Collaborating for public access to scholarly publications: A case study of the partnership between the US Department of Energy and CHORUS – Dylla – – Learned Publishing – Wiley Online Library

“Key points

 

The success of the CHORUS and DOE relationship is the result of nearly two decades of interactions between the DOE and a group of scientific publishers.
The relationship between CHORUS and the US federal agencies required understanding of different motivations, operations, and philosophies.
Although achieving public access was simple in principle, it required considerable effort to develop systems that satisfied all parties.
Publishers had been working with federal agencies to achieve open access before the 2013 White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, but this helped to create a path for a more fruitful relationship….”
