Last September 2018, an international consortium of research funders – referred to as cOAlition S and that includes the FNR, Luxembourg’s national funder – released the Plan S initiative that aims to make scientific publications fully and immediately Open Access (OA). After a period of consultation from the research community and publishers, the final and revised principles and implementation guidelines were published last week.


Plan S states that:

"With effect from 2021, all scholarly publications on the results from research funded by public or private grants provided by national, regional and international research councils and funding bodies, must be published in Open Access Journals, on Open Access Platforms, or made immediately available through Open Access Repositories without embargo."


As a researcher, if you are fully or partially funded by the FNR or by another funding agency part of cOAlition S (for grants awarded as of January 2021), you will be required to:

  • Publish in an OA venue (OA journal or OA platform); or publish in a subscription journal and make it fully open and immediately available on ORBilu; or publish OA in a subscription journal under a transformative arrangement.

  • Publishing in a ‘hybrid’ (or mirror/sister) journal will not be allowed, except if a transformative arrangement is in place.

  • No embargo periods are allowed (i.e. fully open and immediate access on ORBilu).

  • Retain your author rights by publishing under an open licence, preferably the Creative Commons Attribution Licence (CC BY).
