Launched in September 2018, cOAlition S is an initiative of an international consortium of research funders to make full and immediate Open Access to research publications a reality. It is built around Plan S, which consists of one target and 10 principles. In November 2018, cOAlition S released a draft guidance on the implementation of Plan S for public feedback. This process, which lasted from November 2018 to February 2019, collected more than 600 feedback statements from universities, learned societies, publishers, scholarly associations, and individual scholars from more than 40 countries. The documents include all responses and accompanying statements received during the process. Responses have been analysed and an updated guidance on implementation was adopted and published in May 2019. In order to facilitate the download of the full results, a Zip file (002_Plan S_Feedback_all_files) has been added in version 3. Please visit cOAlition S website for more information:
