On 4 September 2018, a group of national research funding organizations, with the support of the European Commission and the European Research Council (ERC), announced the launch of cOAlition S, an initiative to make full and immediate Open Access to research publications a reality. It is built around Plan S, which consists of one target and 10 principles.
cOAlition S signals the commitment to implement the necessary measures to fulfill its main principle:
“With effect from 2021, all scholarly publications on the results from research funded by public or private grants provided by national, regional and international research councils and funding bodies, must be published in Open Access Journals, on Open Access Platforms, or made immediately available through Open Access Repositories without embargo.”

Open Access addresses the problem of publicly funded research bring inaccessible to the public h is a series of principles and practices that encourage research, particularly publicly funded research to be made freely available online. Under a traditional journal publishing model, research at public institutions is funded with grants of public funds. The researcher gives the research output to a publisher without payment, and forfeits all copyright interest to the publisher. Peer review and editing are also not paid services. The publisher sells access to the work, to the public. As the copyright owner, the publisher also has the ability to prevent re-use or building on the research output, even by the authors of the article.
Open Access makes work available to the public through a variety of legal means. The Public Library of Science Journals (PLOS) https://www.plos.org have made over 215,000 peer-reviewed articles free to access, reuse ot redistribute. Depositing the author's pre-print draft of a work (peer reviewed, but not the publisher's formatted and typeset version) into an institutional repository is another means of making scholarship freely available.
