Canadian Historical Review’s Editorial Board’s response to the Tri-Agency OA Policy

January 6, 2014

On October 15, 2013, Canada’s three major public research funding bodies – the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) – posted the draft of the new Tri-Agency Open Access Policy for public comment on the NSERC website.

Below is the Canadian Historical Review’s response to the draft of the new Tri-Agency Open Access Policy.

CHR open access letter December 2013

The CHR offers an analysis of the ideas, people, and events that have molded Canadian society and its institutions into their present state. Canada’s past is examined from a vast and multicultural perspective to provide a thorough assessment of all influences. As a source for authoritative scholarship, giving the sort of in-depth background necessary for understanding the course of daily events – both for Canadians themselves and for others with an interest in the nation’s affairs – the CHR is without rival. The Canadian Historical Review provides comprehensive reviews of books to interest all levels of Canadian historians. Each issue also offers an extensive bibliography of recently published historical writings (including CD and video media) in all areas of Canadian history, conveniently arranged by subject.
