cOAlition S has been busy clarifying elements of Plan S in recent weeks, including requirements on price transparency. In this webinar you will hear from publishers about their experiences preparing for and meeting the new reporting requirements: how they assess the two implementation approaches that are available, how to get started, how to minimise the pain, what they’ve learned, and how they will share and use the data once gathered. Library speakers will share why they support the drive for more price transparency in principle, and their aspirations, hopes, and concerns about how this is approached and delivered in practice.
