CIHR Policy on Access to Research Outputs

The Policy on Access to Research Outputs of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) was posted on September 4, 2007.

A press release: Open access to health research publications: CIHR unveils new policy.

Heather Morrison was, I think, the first blogger to post an item about the policy: Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Policy on Access to Research Outputs.

    Open Access and Medical Art, by Tim Fedak, Medical Illustrations, Nov. 2, 2007. Excerpt:

    “CIHR considers the cost of publishing in open access journals to be an eligible expense under the Use of Grant Funds.” A good place to discover and note if CIHR does also accept artwork development as an eligible expense.

    CIHR Open Access Policy, News from Queen’s Library, Oct. 29, 2007.

    Announced in September of this year, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) will be requiring that all recipients of grants awarded after January 1, 2008 ensure that their original research articles are freely available online within six months of publication.
