Society Publishers Accelerating Open Access and Plan S (SPA-OPS)

We reaffirm our commitment to a transition towards a sustainable open science/research ecosystem and offer reflections on the various open access models and business plans discussed in the consultation document. 

Open Access in the Post-2014 REF

Our reponse argues for clearer wording of criteria, point-of-publication access to outputs, and distinct HEFCE policy on embargoes and licensing.

The impact of exiting the European Union on higher education

Our submission to the Education Committee states the importance of international collaboration in education, and highlights the importance of EU staff and students to geographical research in the UK.

Improving students’ ability to make the right choices about higher education for them

We recommend the inclusion of subject bodies as key information providers and highlight the Society's provision of subject choice advice.
