Tri-Agency Open Access Requirements
The Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications requires grant recipients awarded funding wholly or in part by CIHR*, NSERC and SSHRC after May 1, 2015 to make their peer-reviewed journal publications freely accessible online within 12 months of publication.
How To Comply
- Route A
free deposit of their final, peer reviewed accepted author manuscript to QSpace, Queen's Research Repository (Green Route) or a subject repository of choice.
- Route B
pay-to-publish in a journal that offers immediate open access often upon payment of article processing charges (Gold Route).
Also: acknowledge the source of funding that supported the research in all peer-reviewed publications, quoting the funder and funding reference number.
Compliance Quick Guides
Other research outputs (for example conference proceedings, books, chapters or creative writing) are excluded from the new policy requirements. See also: A Joint Statement issued by the Vice-Principal (Research) & Vice Provost and University Librarian, on the Tri-Agency Policy. March 3rd 2015.
