What is the further action you would like to see?

I do see that danger, but it depends and differs strongly accross disciplines: in maths many jounals are already diamond, in astronomy most jounals are society based, in humanities many journals are also diamond.

Diamond as a way of publishing is older than APC based gold. It's just the term that came later. And no, gold is not de facto APC based. Visit any publisher, funder, jounal, search engine site to witness that gold is use as opposed to green: publisher OA versus self archiving.

That would be a misreading. Only principles 4 and 5 mention fees and even those use a "when applicable" wording. I view accepting capped APCs in Plan S as realistic and driven by the urge to create mass effect in a short time span. But yes: diamond needs more attention.

Again: gold never meant open access requiring an APC. Diamond is a subset of gold.

Whatever the discussion, there is great light in that photo!

And thus a tool that is just free is distant family of a tool that just does not require registration if both are traits of the openness family. I have been looking at our five criteria in that sense: free, open source, stakeholder governed, open licensed data, non profit

Interesting. I would simplistically interpret family resemblance as having at least one if a larger number of characteristics in common with at least one of a group. The more common characteristics, the closer family two members are.

A news item on Plan S in the Swedish : Alas, it promulgates the idea that Plan S equates to an APC based system. That is a misconception. Diamond OA journals comply just as well.

BTW the tool that promises to find research outcomes without having to use the jargon is currently in the making : .

I would say almost all of the many hundreds in our list are built with researchers in mind. That does not automatically imply that they are free, open source, stakeholder governed and have open-licensed data. Would be great if researchers considered these criteria when choosing.

Thanks for sharing your view on tools. Though I second your dislike of and one wonders why many millions of researchers freely choose to use them. Apparently in the current system these tools bring them some advantage or at least make them believe so.

You might need mandates and policies to create enough mass of OA to *then* be more successful in wining hearts and minds of the mainstream. But *trying* to win hearts and minds in an open discussion right from the start is imperative and should never be given up on.

Dear , has this person _really_ peer reviewed 332 manuscripts in the last 12 months? Including 211 reviews for Elsevier's 'Journal of Cleaner Production'

MNRAS is almost compliant as it does allow you to self-archive the publisher version of the paper on publication.

I wonder if there is any talk about aligning US, European, Latin American, African and Asian approaches to full OA. Also see this thread with views on /animations of green and gold in a range of publication years for institutions around the world:

Somebody asked me for a list of current initiatives so here's a (self-centred) list of projects that I'm part of and that are either launched or in development. Please add more in reply to the last tweet in this thread to create a central resource. /1

Many alternatives. This slide has most of them. Questions to ask for each one: free? need to register? non-profit? stakeholder governed? open-licensed data? open source? SSRN alternatives: SocArXiv, LawArXiv, and the generic OSFpreprints, or

I used to host all my papers with . I’m out. It just gets worse. Now people have to create an account & login to download freely uploaded papers. This used to be the easiest way to make PDFs available to all. I’m exiting the whole system this month. Shame on .
