Elsevier welcomes cOAlition S’s updated implementation guidance: “Accelerating the transition to full and immediate Open Access to scientific publications.” Elsevier fully supports and promotes open access. Authors can achieve full and immediate open access — and so be Plan S compliant — either by publishing their articles in our gold open access journals or publishing their articles gold open access in our hybrid journals.

We welcome that cOAlition S recognizes these as channels for scientists to publish their research. We will provide practical guidelines for authors before Plan S goes live in 2021 so it will be clear how to publish in Elsevier journals while also being Plan S compliant.
