SSHRC Open Access Consultation: October 31 deadline!

SSHRC Aid to Open Access Research Journals. April 2007. A one-year program designed to test a new approach to funding SSHRC-sponsored journals.

Please see the May 6, 2006 update SSHRC to Actively Promote Open Access to Research Results

Canada's Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) adopted Open Access in principle in April 2005, and is presently seeking input on implementation measures. The deadline for this consultation process is October 31.

SSHRC is hearing from the publishers - let's make sure they hear from the rest of us, too!

Excerpt (Dr. Eysenbach's response):
With turning down the Journal of Medical Internet Research as a SSHRC funded journal only because at that time it didn’t have paying subscribers (because it is Open Access) SSHRC lost a tremendous opportunity to explore researcher-led experimental models of publishing. .
Note: SSHRC rules at present are based on a subscription system, and discriminate against open access journals. Simply eliminating this discriminatory practice would do a lot to further open access in Canada!
