In early, 2015 the Tri-Agency (CIHR, NSERC & SSHRC) announced its Open Access Policy on publications:
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."
The policy applies to:
- NSERC or SSHRC grants awarded on or after May 1, 2015.
- CIHR grants awarded on or after January 1, 2008.
At this workshop librarians will discuss the policy and its requirements, present an introduction to author’s rights and responsibilities and demonstrate how to use UWSpace to 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.
