Rights Retention: Exploring how the Plan S Strategy could apply globally: Recording Available!

In January 2021, IFLA’s Section on Academic and Research Libraries, together with IFLA Headquarters, organised a series of three webinars with experts from cOAlition S.

These focused on learning more about the Rights Retention Strategy, a key part of wider efforts to promote open access, in this case by avoiding situations where researchers sign away their rights to publishers, and can rather keep them in order to make their work available for free.

They also provided an opportunity to ask questions, and to test out how the Strategy could apply in different contexts, in particular outside of the global North.

We are happy to make the recordings available, together with the resources highlighted by the cOAlition S team:
