Publishers IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) have announced that, as of now, authors receiving research grants from Coalition S funders are now compliant with Plan S requirements when publishing their research articles in any IEEE fully open access or hybrid journals. This means that all of IEEE’s hybrid journals now qualify as ‘transformative journals’ under Plan S. This development represents a major step by ensuring that more authors can continue to publish in the publication of their choice and still be in compliance with Coalition S funder requirements, including UKRI.
