Open Access

Open access is the practice of making your research available online free of charge. It is a growing movement designed to make research more widely available and increase its impact...

As of February 27, 2015, SSHRC, NSERC, and CIHR have a harmonized "Open Access Policy on Publications" that requires research publications from their grants to be made openly available. This is called the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.  More information about the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy is available here.
