Meeting 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
To comply, you can choose one of two routes:
- Green Route
free deposit of your final, peer reviewed accepted author manuscript to QSpace, Queen's Research Repository or a subject repository of choice.
- Gold Route
pay-to-publish in a journal that offers immediate open access often upon payment of article processing charges.
Also, make sure to 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.
