Abstract
For more than twenty years the Open Access movement has been trying to remove access barriers to scientific results. However, today this goal has still not been fully achieved. Initiatives for Open Access publishing like Plan S - supported by cOAlition S, an international consortium of research funders – or transformative agreements like the German Projekt DEAL try to turn Open Access into the standard for scientific publishing. At the same time, the main actors - researchers, publishers, libraries and research funders - continue to have very different views on how to achieve the goal of open access. On the occasion of this year's Open Access week, renowned representatives from science, publishers and libraries will discuss the current developments in Europe based on the concrete examples of Plan S and Projekt DEAL.At the joint event organized by EMBL Szilárd Library and EMBO press, Dr. Ralf Schimmer, deputy director of the Max Planck Digital Library, Dr. Guido F. Herrmann, Managing Director of Germany and Vice President at John Wiley & Sons, and Prof. Dr. Maria Leptin, Director of EMBO, discuss the topic of Europe's Road towards Open Science and Open Access - where do Plan S and Projekt DEAL lead us?
