Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications

The Open Access policy announced by the three federal research granting agencies – Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) – means that all Saint Paul University researchers who receive grant funding will need to make their research available online for free.

As of May 1, 2015, researchers who receive NSERC and SSHRC grants must comply with the policy. Researchers who were awarded grants prior to May 1, 2015, are encouraged, but not obligated, to follow the policy.

Memorandum of Understanding on the Roles and Responsibilities in the Management of Federal Grants and Awards (MOU)

NSERC, CIHR and SSHRC, in consultation with other institutions that administer funds for federally funded projects, have collaborated and created this Memorandum, which acts as a tangible agreement declaring shared accountability for funds administered. It describes the basic requirements for institutions to be eligible to administer agency funding.
