This table shows a schematic overview of the most common publication business models currently used in science publishing, with a special focus on Gold OA, Transformative Agreements, and Diamond OA in the context of Plan S.

  • Gold OA using Article Processing Charges (APCs): involving commercial / society publishers, and Overlay Journals
  • Transformative agreements: Read-And-Publish (RAP) and Publish-And-Read (PAR) agreements
  • Diamond OA (Library-supported): SCOAP3 and Subscribe to Open (S2O)
  • Closed: Subscription

For each business model, the table lists the following properties:

  • Status
  • Who pays?
  • How much?
  • Who can read (i.e., who has read / use access)?
  • Who can publish (i.e., whose publishing costs are covered)?
  • Is the business model Plan S compliant?
  • Expected cost evolution

Note: the expected cost evolution reflects the author’s personal opinion.
