One of the breakout groups at members’ day was on ‘ supporting funder policies’. Around 16 people attended this group and we had a wide ranging discussion that covered the implications of Plan S to the management of tracking open access payments. The clear messages that came out from this discussion were that we would like clear mandates from funders and simple information. The role of publishers’ was discussed at length. There is a lot of discussion on the UKCORR mailing list about funder policies and it was felt that collation of responses would be very helpful.
