Webinar Details:
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) invite the Canadian research community to an information session on their recently announced Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications. The session will be an opportunity for the research community to learn more about the policy and its impacts on agency-funded research publications. The Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications (the Policy) applies to all NSERC and SSHRC funded grants awarded May 1, 2015 and onwards.

As publicly funded institutions, CIHR, SSHRC and NSERC (the “Agencies”) have a fundamental interest in ensuring that the research they fund, including research publications and publication-related data, is available to the widest possible audience, at the earliest possible opportunity.
