Tri-Agency Open Access Policy – Resources and Answers

Open Access lock

The Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications was released by NSERC, SSHRC and CIHR on February 27, 2015. The policy requires funded researchers to make their peer-reviewed journal publications openly accessible in a repository or journal within 12 months of publication.
