Abstract

Recent moves by funding bodies towards mandating Open Access to research, exemplified by “Plan S”, are making it ever more essential for scholars in the political sciences to engage with, and understand, the diversity of publishing options available to them. Alongside potential benefits of increased visibility and availability, mandatory OA has been criticised for potential negative impacts it may have on scholarly societies, academic freedom, and equality and diversity, especially for independent scholars and researchers in the Global South. This panel brings together a variety of perspectives in a round table format, to encourage open discussion and debate.
