Funder OA Policies

Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) have implemented a harmonized open access policy, the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications.

In addition to the policy itself, researchers may also find the Tri-Council Agencies’ Frequently Asked Questions and the Toolbox useful.
