Open Access Policy
Under the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications, peer-reviewed journal publications resulting from Tri-Agency grants must be made freely accessible online within 12 months of publication. Tri-Agency grants are those financed by any of the three main research granting agencies in Canada: the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). Other research granting agencies (e.g., the Research Councils of the United Kingdom and the Australian Research Council) have similar policies. In order to facilitate compliance with these policies, our publisher offers immediate open access on its Wiley Online Library via an OnlineOpen service. The cost for OnlineOpen is US$3,000, which can be paid by the author, the author's funding agency, or the author's institution. Note that under the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications, costs associated with open access publishing are considered to be eligible grant expenses.
