In September 2018 a consortium of international funding agencies, cOAlition S, announced a set of guidelines for research resulting from their grants. Known as Plan S, the guidelines state that from 2020 all their funded research must be published in compliant Open Access journals or platforms. This guidance was made open for public feedback, with a request for comment on areas requiring clarification or adaptation. The BIR submitted a response which can be downloaded here.
