Event Description

ASSAf Presidential Roundtable: Science, Scholarship and Society on:

‘Is Scholarly Publishing becoming Unaffordable?’ An Evidence-based Dialogue on the Implications of a European Plan S on South African Research 

In collaboration with Stellenbosch University Library 

Launched in 2018, Plan S is an initiative by Science Europe for Open Access publishing. The initiative that promotes making full and immediate Open Access a reality, has received much criticism of its implementation guidelines.  There is concern about the transition to this model amongst both commercial publishers and a range of learned society journal publishers. How should South African institutions address the implications of Plan S? What exactly will the potential impact be on researchers and institutional budgets? Will Plan S not just be replacing the barrier to read with a barrier to authorship? Through its panellists, the Roundtable will be one of many efforts to understand this contentious subject and the related issues.

Date: 24 October 2019

Time: 17:00 for 17:30 – 19:30 SAST

Venue: JS Gericke Library Auditorium, Stellenbosch University, Victoria & Ryneveld Streets
This event will be live streamed. Details to be provided closer to the time.

Moderator: Prof Jonathan Jansen, Distinguished Professor of Education, Stellenbosch University & President of the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf)
