I noticed some time ago some of the usual suspects in the technical press had started casting aspersions on #SciHub, as if the problem wasn't a fundamentally broken #academic publishing system.

While I do believe academic research should receive the same #copyright protections as other work, there should be a compulsory licence to freely publish it and a public repository such as the #Arxiv.

@echo_pbreyer, are there any legislative proposals in that direction?

I read about Plan S : "Plan S is an initiative for open-access science publishing launched in 2018 by a consortium of 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 2021."
