This workshop will review the Tri-agency (CIHR, NSERC & SSHRC) Open Access policy on publications, which applies to all NSERC or SSHRC grants awarded on or after May 1, 2015 and CIHR grants awarded on or after January 1, 2008. The session will cover:
- discuss the policy and its requirements
- present an introduction to author’s rights and responsibilities
- demonstrate how to use UWSpace and take advantage of the copyright review and deposit service to easily comply with the policy
Waterloo researchers who have received grant funding or have an interest in making their research Open Access are encouraged to attend.
The policy states:
Grant recipients are required to ensure that any peer-reviewed journal publications arising from Agency-supported research are freely accessible within 12 months of publication.
Note: Due to time constraints this presentation is focussed on assisting researchers to broadly understand their rights and to promote the locally provided services that will assist them to achieve compliance.”
