The RHS has released (29 July 2019) an interim working paper offering a preliminary mapping of current preparedness for Plan S open access implementation among UK and international ‘hybrid’ History journals. The working paper’s primary audience is scholarly editors and editorial boards, History learned societies, publishers of Humanities journals, and funding bodies.
This working paper is based on a preliminary analysis of survey responses provided by 50 UK and international History journals.
As an interim working paper, this report is designed to elicit further evidence, feedback and corrections for a more comprehensive analysis which the Royal Historical Society intends to publish by 1 October 2019. A key aim of the report will be to inform stakeholders’ contributions to the forthcoming UKRI Open Access Review.
If you are an editor of a History journal, based anywhere in the world, and would like to complete the survey to inform our work in this area, please download the RHS Survey of Journal Editors (July 2019) and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 September 2019.
