The Higher Council For Science And Technology (HCST)
The Higher Council for Science and Technology is the first organisation in the Middle East who joined cOAlition PLAN S

Plan S is an initiative for open-access science publishing that was launched by Science Europe on 4th September 2018. It is an initiative of "cOAlition S" a consortium launched by major national research agencies and funders from twelve European countries. The plan requires scientists and researchers who benefit from state-funded research organisations and institutions to publish their work in open repositories or in journals that are available to all by 2020. The "S" stands for "shock".

The Higher Council for Science and Technology is the first organisation in the Middle East who joined cOAlition PLAN S. which is a clear indication of HCST leadership in Science and Innovation Policy.

 

HCST make it clear that the results of publicity funded research should be freely accessible to society with no barriers or only available behind expensive pay walls which restrict any access to science and innovation.

 

A Decisive Step towards the Realisation of Full Open Access Needs to be Taken Now.
