SSHM Plan S survey

Whilst the SSHM Executive Committee is broadly in support of the principle of open access, we are concerned about how Plan S is implementing plans determining where funded research is to be published, and the lack of a funding model or financial recognition of the role of publishers, the impact of this on learned societies, and the impact on individuals’ careers and choices. We are keen to find out what our members and the wider history of medicine community think about the proposed changes which will affect our  community in 2020 and beyond. This survey collects data for the Society’s responses to Plan S. Our intention is that responses are anonymous and we recommend you do not include identifying replies to questions. We have intentionally used Yes/No responses for some questions rather than ‘maybe’ or ‘not sure’ and would be very grateful if you could choose the best fit from these options.
