This paper seems to have struck a chord, given how recently published it is, as it tries to make sense of Open Access and Open Data policies and mandates, such as the Plan S, in order to discuss how these translate into Open Research. Apparently, Open Research remains elusive, due to its perceived impacts on established academia-industry relations, subscription and publication practices and existing scholarly routines. In other words, the competitive, validity-promoting and collaboration-related advantages of Open Access continue to be in need of articulation, if not detailed explication, as they apply to specific contexts. Thus, Open Access can transform not only how the book and journal publishing industry operates, but also the manner in which scholarly practices are carried out, such as in terms of authorship attribution and funding management.
