Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications

January 31, 2pm-3pm, Okanagan campus, Room L125

The Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications applies to all grants awarded May 1, 2015 and onward for research funded in whole or in part by NSERC or SSHRC, while CHIR funded research has been required to adhere to a similar policy since January 1, 2008. The new harmonized Tri-Agency policy requires that all peer-reviewed journal publications resulting from funding by the Tri-Agencies (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC) must be freely available online within 12 months of publication. This workshop provides guidance on the options available for compliance with the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications, including deposit in UBC’s institutional repository, cIRcle.
