The Beilstein Journals are Plan S compliant

The Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry and the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology are fully Plan S compliant. Researchers who are financially supported by organizations endorsing Plan S (e.g., European Commission) are assured that publishing in our diamond open access journals will fulfill their funder publishing requirements.


We have invested significant effort in ensuring that the Beilstein Journals meet, and even exceed, all current technical, licensing, reporting and transparency requirements of Plan S. Additionally, our open and transparent publishing strategy fulfills the publishing requirements of all relevant funding agencies, not only in Europe, but also in other parts of the world. Examples of funding organizations for which our journals are compliant include NIH, NSF, Wellcome Trust, ERC, UKRI, DFG and the European Commission.


Plan S is an initiative by cOAlition S, a consortium of national research agencies and funders to ensure open and immediate access to funded research publications. Read more about Plan S and its consortium.
