Last modified: January 20, 2020

During this symposium, the aim is to reflect on how the scientific publishing landscape has changed under the influence of the move towards open access and the adoption of Plan S. This symposium is a collaboration of the Young Academy of Belgium and the Belgian Royal Academy of Medicine (KAGB).

What are the challenges of peer-reviewed scientific publication under the move towards open access and following the adoption of Plan S? How prepared are researchers for the implementation of Plan S? Which unethical publishing practices exist and how can the research community best tackle them? We gather speakers & panelists from academia, policy, publishing and journalism, to offer different perspectives. We focus on Medicine and Health researchers and journals, although most findings are applicable to all knowledge disciplines.
