On February 27, the Canadian funding agencies (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC) announced a new Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications that requires federally funded peer-reviewed journal publications be made freely available.
The policy states that grant recipients can comply by depositing their accepted manuscript in an online open access repository or by publishing their work in an open access journal.
Depositing your accepted manuscript or final paper in Scholarship@Western fulfils your Open Access obligation to the funding agencies.
Scholarship@Western collects, disseminates, archives, and preserves a variety of materials created or sponsored by Western University community. It aims to facilitate knowledge sharing by providing open access to the academic and professional achievements at Western. Please note that journal articles available from Scholarship@Western may not be the final published version. If you have any questions, suggestions, or comments, please contact .
