An initial discussion document from the Society Publishers Accelerating Open access and Plan S (SPA-OPS) project. This paper presents a short background study to identify key issues learned societies face in the light of Plan S, and a series of options through which learned society publishers could transition to OA and develop Plan-S compliant business models.

This work was conducted by Alicia Wise and Lorraine Estelle of Information Power. The SPA-OPS project was commissioned by Wellcome, UKRI, and the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP).
