CIHR Policy on Access to Research Outputs

July 17th, 2008 by Cathy · No Comments

Canada’s Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) recently enacted a new policy, Policy on Access to Research Outputs, effective as of January 2008 that requires all research papers generated from CIHR funded projects to be freely accessible through publishers’ websites or an online repository within six months of publication. At this time there is no central repository model similar to PubMed Central but CIHR and the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI) are planning development of a PubMed Central International (PMCI) Canada repository site.
