The Tri-Agency Open Access Policy - From Author's Rights to Depositing in UWSpace

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:

  • outline the policy and its requirements
  • present an introduction to author’s rights and responsibilities
  • demonstrate how to use UWSpace and its 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.

Note: Due to time constraints, this presentation is focused on assisting researchers to broadly understand their rights and to promote the locally provided services that will assist them to achieve compliance.
